A pendulum swings from side to side, one extreme to another. Its even cadence allowing the anticipation of each movement, each shift from one side to the next. So it is with life, the shifting from one extreme to the other, from winter to spring, summer to fall, light to darkness. The rhythmic motion like a child's swing cradling us and bringing us from one season to the next.

But as with life, a force thrust upon a pendulum can jolt it, sending it unexpectedly wobbly, spiraling and bouncing wildly without steady direction. Given enough time and a safe environment, it will find its rhythm once again. The steady pace will re-emerge. Eventually, we all have the ability to find our way home.

For the first time in quite awhile, I feel surprisingly hopeful.

This is my story about being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 39. I thought I was out of the woods, but four years late it came back. This is my quest to be a two-time survivor.
