- Allow me to retain at least two precious things I have: my rationality and my left arm and hand function, allowing me to communicate with the world in a meaningful way.
Most of what you’ll read here is life and fun, with episodes from my past, amusing and serious. But I have an unwelcome stranger lodged in my brain, as you’ll find if you explore my stories. Our destinies are interlocked, but its deadly presence reminds me every minute that each day of life is a miracle. This is my space to reflect on life, and an interactive area where we can share our experiences freely. Without you, this blog has no reason for existence. Carpe Diem!

As Jack Kornfield said, "In the big changes in life, the only currency we have is what our spiritual practice has brought us. They don't take VISA or Mastercard." Or something to that effect.
Here goes. Let's see if this works.
It works, Joan - thanks! When I make this more public, perhaps we'll get interesting discussion on this theme. Kornfield is probably pretty right, but it does seem they are prepared to take a credit card when it comes to some high-priced treatments! Still, I think the latter is useless without the right mental approach.ReplyDelete
