On Belay

Every summer a non-profit, all-volunteer organization in our state runs a camp weekend for families of pediatric cancer patients. As I am ethically opposed to nature — and coincidentally drowning in work as a result of our most recent vacation — I skipped the outdoor adventure, but watched VM and VB pack up the car on Friday and head into the wilderness.

They are now back, albeit a little sun exposed and perfumed with the latest in all-natural bug repellant technology. But, brimming with pride, VB tells me about his adventures, and proudly shows me his latest accomplishment — actually making it halfway up a climbing wall!

As I am brimming with pride and amazement, I am reminded that once again we are hanging by our metaphorical ropes, as VB has his next MRI tomorrow (Tuesday). Any spotters out there are welcomed! I’ll be tweeting updates throughout the day — upward and onward!
