And suddenly, summer is ending. Last I looked, it was spring. I know time flies, but this is ridiculous. Blink once, summer’s gone. Blink twice, it’s spring again and the same people still haven’t gotten vaccinated. We are still in the same place.
Are human beings required to better themselves and will doing that make them happier?
I doubt there is any manmade law requiring us to improve ourselves, but certainly every philosophy and belief system requires it. I’m pretty sure the injunction to “make oneself better” is not intended to make us feel better. It’s there to make us feel more righteous and have the satisfaction of doing the right thing, even when it is inconvenient or difficult.
Certainly Christians who try to emulate Christ are not making their lives happier in any exterior way, though they may feel better about themselves.
Is it easier to love or to be loved?
Is love ever easy? Falling in love may be easy, but everything else is complicated.
Outside traumatic brain injury, can memories be completely erased?
No. Even in those with Alzheimer’s or dementia, memories remain. They may be disorganized, even chaotic, but they are there.
Is there such a thing as a good death?
Gibbs, our Scottie had a great death. He went to sleep on the sofa and didn’t wake up. I wish that I could have such a clean death.
I’d like to thank my son for all the help he has given us, Garry for hanging in there with me, and the Duke for helping us laugh through hard times!
I know I’ve been less connected recently, but I’m getting older and more tired. Yesterday, for example, I couldn’t find a thought anywhere in my head. It was completely hollow between the ears. Some days are just like that! I used to get a bump of energy in the morning. I still do, but it’s a lot smaller a bump than it was.
