There are many people going through a rough time, perhaps because of illness or other life circumstances, which brought their lives to worser times than many of ours.
Some of them talk or write about it. Every single one of them has a story that is unique and touching. Anthony Andrew Wade Duncan is a cyclist philosopher. He is passionate about bikes and even made some of them, what he considers as an art. He says that he put a piece of himself in very bike he ever made.
He discovered that he has cancer. His quest is not about how he is going to die but how he is going to live…now.
As they say in America, boy, don’t I feel small and irrelevant with my little problems, in face of someone with so much strength, passion, and will for life, despite his condition? He reminds me so much of my brother, who passed in 2012. I wrote a post On Being Human to express what I learned from him and other cancer patients.
