For those who aren’t familiar with me (and I’m sure you are legion), I run the joint across Blogtown known as The Cheerful Oncologist, where I compose tasty tidbits of literary effluvia on topics both mundane and majestic in the world of medicine. I tend to favor a Weltanschauung similar to that espoused by the great American philosopher Elbert Hubbard, who said “Don’t take life too seriously. You’ll never get out of it alive.”
(He also came up with this gem: “Genius may have its limitations, but stupidity is not thus handicapped.” – which reminds me to renew my subscription to People magazine.)
For a sample of my writing try this hot-off-the-press post on the distress of having to take adjuvant chemotherapy, and a simple way to survive it.
