"One thing I have learned is I can survive / Just about anything which comes my way"

Transcendental Sonnet #1353:

I am fortunate just to be alive
To have all my fingers and all my toes
Since I am here now I might as well thrive
As I follow fate and follow my nose
And enjoy this trip wherever it goes
One thing I have learned is I can survive
Just about anything which comes my way

Today is much better than yesterday
And tomorrow the joy I will derive
From simply waking up in the morning
Should serve to those who hurt me as warning
No one can stop this insatiable drive
Of destiny I feel within me now
No matter what: I will survive somehow

You say it so Well Steve! It reminds me
that on May 5th it will be exactly 16 yrs
ago that I was told I would DIE in less than 2 years because
of a brainstem lesion! I think I fooled the doctors on that one!
Lesion taken out in September, 1997. .nd one taken out

Life is good!
Love ya! Yes, Life is good indeed!~
