Because this clinic and hospital is so well known for research and having the latest treatments available, many people arrive after surgeries or treatments elsewhere have not worked fully. Newcomers also arrive because they are in need of specialists. Some of my fellow residents have been battling cancer for many years.
I find myself grateful to my local doctor who found my cancer when he did before it started causing the major problems that so many others have had to deal with. From the beginning, my sarcoma has involved the specialists who frequently deal with that specific disease.
Tonight was pot luck and, just like in the parishes, the tables were filled with scrumptious dishes of great variety. But, the food is secondary to the interesting cast of characters the meal brings together.
One resident I talked to built a 14 ton sailboat by himself! He and his wife have spent several summers sailing to Europe and back – usually 3 weeks just crossing the Atlantic. There’s a man who loves adventure!
But, especially as a parish priest, I found that every person has some unique and fascinating experiences of life and stories to tell.

Easter blessings and joy, Fr Steve!
Those eggs were included in celebration –
converted from some Roman custom, I was told – and rightly so. Eggs mean new life.
I hope new life in buds, leaves, baby birds
you encounter on your daily walks will lift
Here in Carolina we have to be careful not
to hit baby squirrels when driving. They
are plentiful. Dogwood in full bloom too.
Healing Spring wishes, Paula
