A Sense Of Death

Many say there is no reason to fear death.

Yet, we fear the unknown.

It may not be a choice.

It may simply be the reality.

With enough exposure, we will feel the fear.

This may simply be the internal senses within our body becoming feelings of fear and anxiety.

Listen to this 97 year old philosopher, and learn what you can about dying, because it is part of living, for all of us.

Compassionate, Kind, Silent

Be compassionate, help yourself and others when in need.

Be kind and do no harm.

Be silent and learn to watch and listen, do not judge.

Virtues grow with action, and improve with practice.

They are available for all who choose them.

Civil Disobedience Vs Civil Obedience

Is there a convenience to the struggle for freedom: rights, liberty, freedom of speech?

Many protestors violate the very rights and freedoms held by all for a ‘good cause’.

Civility has changed as much as virginity in the last decade.

People are becoming agitated by political correctness and intellectuals who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk.

Virtue maybe becoming a bad word at best and an erosion of attitude and worse.

A healthy skepticism about society exists, what is worth your protest?

Climbing

A soloist, some one that climbs alone.

This can change with a sex partner, an injury, coming back from living alone, away, etc.

The addiction, vice, or high risk taking,

The journal is all about the climbing experience each day.

Sigh, when free soloing, 20 or 30 people die,

Most people pushing those limits are aware that they will die.

Do you have a tired amygdala?

Maybe you have enough practice climbing to make a decent solo climber, not!!!!

Small, tiny edges, the 2 point balance holds you, El Capetian!

Spraining a foot from a 30 foot fall, go climbing to fix it.

A girlfriend helps me through many injuries,

Ankle injury, Free rider is 3000 feet of crack climbing,

And it all depends on a good ankle.

Now with people, babies, feelings, touching, I seem like a real person.

Perfectionism is a must:  good enough is not good enough.

I don’t want to die, but perfectionism…

Free solo is the ultimate!

A 30 foot fall, summersault off an over hang.

After the piton pops out, life flashes in front of my eyes, then the safety piton holds.

Falling 16 feet off a cliff into a bed of boulders:  I walk away!  Good luck!

Actually, it is a discussion about the ‘bully’ in literature.

Think of popular lit, “Lord Of The Flies”, all those kids without adult supervision, trying to survive on an island. Some were bullies.

News is that there are many references to this topic in literature.

Perhaps, recommendations can be considered appropriate on such a hot button topic.
