Meningioma Monday...

"Creativity is contagious. Pass it on.” — Albert Einstein

I admire creative people especially those with an artistic bent. Being one who works with words, it was only natural to wonder if I would lose the ability to write after my meningioma surgeries. Thankfully, time and lots of healing proved my doubts and fears wrong.

Despite my meningioma, I'm still able to pursue my craft. Along my meningioma journey I've been fortunate to cross paths with other meningioma survivors who are still able to pursue their creative passions.

Today's Meningioma Monday "Creative Cranium" shout out goes to Barbara Conway, a meningioma survivor who is an oil painting genius.

Meningioma Monday...

Just because we have a meningioma doesn't mean it has to quash our creativity. 
Try your hand at a meningioma inspired haiku.

In case you don't remember, a haiku is 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables.

OK, I'll start:

Meningioma Monday...

Now that we've sprung forward, that's one less hour to deal with a meningioma--the diagnosis, recovery, ongoing journey. 

With spring quickly approaching, how do you plan to further advance your healing and new lease on life?

Don't be shy, share.

Thank you!

Meningioma Monday...

Mind over Meningioma

Elated to be Alive

Not about to give  up

In my own time

New improved version of the old me

Given a second chance

It's up to me

On a journey

Must continue to raise


Mellow mood

Okay if today's "To Do" list remains unfinished

New day to reach higher

Ditch the naysayers

Always press on

You are still here for a reason
