It is 7:30AM on a sunny August day in Los Angeles, California. My husband brings me a cup of Morning Thunder tea and sits down beside me for our morning ritual of 29 years -- telling each other the dreams of the night before. His was an odd one; his dream body instructs him to remember upon waking that "he spent 352 hours on his new computer."

As Facebook and Twitter don't provide enough bandwidth to develop thoughtful ideas, the blog-o-sphere seemed like a tempting confessional, although the idea of blogging had never occurred to me until that very moment.

Just two years ago, I survived a near-death experience thanks to cancer and chemo.
