Lust for Life

Carr brews a cup of chamomile tea in her bright kitchen. She is reminded of Dr. Mehmet Oz’s visit when he came to film a segment for Oprah on juicing. They chatted as they chopped vegetables. “He asked if I think about death all the time,” says Carr. “I looked down at the cutting board. I answered, ‘No, I don’t. Right now I’m thinking about chopping onions.’”

It’s a windy afternoon and as Carr speaks trees can be seen swaying through the kitchen windows. A statue of a golden Buddha sits beside a stone pathway. A photograph of a monk smoking a cigarette hangs on the wall. Carr’s manuscript is due in two days, her online community is pressuring her to hurry up and add a forum to her blog, and she has agreed to emcee an upcoming fundraiser for a sarcoma group.

Carr acknowledges her path to health is not for everybody, and she doesn’t confuse herself for a doctor, although she is a certified health educator. She wraps the string of the tea bag around the handle of the mug. “There is a lot of work to be done. We are over not participating in our health,” she says. “But tonight, it’s date night with my husband.”
