By the age of 65, a chronological totem I have recently passed, we begin to notice there are more of our cohort suffering poor health, or past the point of worry because they are dead. Those indulging in such behavior as you cite are most likely the ones most fearful of the conditions they impart to the consideration of others. Worry doesn’t seem to lead to reconciliation. Much better ’tis to contemplate the possibility of some answers to the eternal questions; the whats and whys of a life, or simply look to a final rush of endorphins, a rewind, and replay of the life tape before we see the light inviting us to…..What?

What is so sad is how many people find it easier to get worked up over tragic events. Is it really that difficult to be happy?? Along those lines have you ever noticed how many people never ask the question “How are you?” But, they sure will tell you all about themselves.
