Nature and Chemotherapy

I found great solace in the beauty of nature while undergoing chemotherapy. Views , which before I’d hardly noticed or took for granted were now indescribably beautiful, more intricate and complex than anything I’d ever seen before. The medication may have had something to do with this; perhaps the steroids; but I think it had something to do with the intensification of my senses and appreciation of life experiencing cancer. Inspired by the wondrous diversity of nature, I resolved to stay alive for as long as possible simply to go on celebrating the miracle of life, heartened to realize it’d all still be there for others to enjoy and celebrate long after my passing.
