What a week!
Frankly, I need some levity in this contribution to WEGO’s Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge. Here are a couple of vintage photos of myself taken on Easter Sunday, 1970.
These photos were taken:
•6 months after my sister was born.
•7 years before I tested into my school’s TAG program.
•8 years before I went downhill skiing for the first time.
•10 years before I was diagnosed with asthma.
•12 years before I got my first set of golf clubs.
•16 years before I went 8 hours away from home to attend Northern Michigan University.
•22 years before I ski bummed a winter in Colorado and joined the Peace Corps.
•29 years before I would drive with my sister from Chicago to Los Angeles in a Ryder truck with all of my possessions, towing my car.
•32 years before I met my husband in Chicago
•39 years before I tore my ACL after catching a patch of ice at Mt. Bohemian (which is located in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula).
•41.75 years before I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
•43 years before I would be enjoying a beautiful, sunny day while lounging in our sun room in New Orleans.
