I started this blog to help integrate an invasive breast cancer diagnosis into my life. I wrote the first post after a day at the beach with my mom; we spent hours witnessing an enormous scuttle of rock crabs interact with the tide. This was our reward after waiting to learn the results of a lymph node biopsy. I had just turned 39.

I realized then how being in and connected with nature brings me perspective, comfort and clarity.

Thank you for reading.
