Knowledge is a fascinating thing - the progress of the human race relies upon knowledge being gathered and then shared and passed on. How does one generation learn from the last, how does one set of people learn from another, how does someone embarking on a journey learn from someone who just completed a similar journey? Knowledge transfer. Teaching. Learning. Contemplating and pondering.
5 years ago I had my diagnosis of Hodgkins Lymphoma and the journey of the last 5 years has changed me. This blog is part of the process of documenting and sharing the thoughts, ideas, fears and hopes that I experienced during this time.
Are the ideas I now think about - things nothing to do with lymphoma - also worth expressing and sharing with others? Now I have almost completed documetning the 'Cancer Journey' should this blog still remain? Does it still hold relevance?
In this age of sharing and networking and the availability of information I feel there is always value in sharing - and so I will make this blog a repository of my thoughts, idaes and feelings.
Will it be of use to everyone? Probably not. But I think (and hope) every single post will be of use to at least someone and that makes it worthwhile for me.
More coming soon.
