short chat about what I have been learning

So, I have learned a few things about my camera – after I learned about messing up the focus…, had a bit of a snag with lighting, then the furnace started…  Overall, not much new- only took me 3 days to get this video completed… but I realized that my hair was a mess and I say UMMM and AHHH way tooo much.  I even editted a number of them out of it.  I do have some new tricks though. I have another idea that I will try tomorrow….

Emotions

I recently had a phone call that is never fun.  Someone close to me had a doctor tell him that of what ails him; cancer is one of the possible answers to his current situation. We chatted about the ups and downs about the roller coaster ride of what a cancer diagnosis would do to his emotions.  After the call, I thought about how I went through the ride, and how I still feel about the ride, as it is still ongoing. The good news, his current situation is most likely not cancer.

Coming soon

As I start to find ways of wrapping my mind around my future with Cancer, I know that there will be many changes in my lifestyle.  There are many unknowns that I get to figure out – not the least of which is:  What to do now that I have to grow up and get a real job due to the fact that I will no longer be able to be a military aviator. I have started a facebook page that people can like to promote discussion and ideas. https://www.facebook.com/chronicleswithcancer videos and opening intros coming soon.
