“Are you going to die?” my 8-year-old daughter asked me the other day. “They said on the radio that adults are getting sick and dying.”

This and that can be a serious topic…
Like most, journaling is therapy for the writer, reader and hopefully the family friends and community.
A dire hope is that all will support the effort by whatever name it is called, wisdom tells us we can not see until we get past the name.
But some words are truer than others: hiv/ aids, Ebola, and the COVID-19 ( are to only name a few)
Please, support the effort.

the spiritual benefits of dying
after a death
medical assistance in dying
the dying process
signs of a dying person
the dying experience
the benefits of walking it off,
Okay, we are all going to die someday.
And we all need to face the bullet topic of the inevitable listed above.
But not today.
When, and only when you are ready.
Start, by thinking about death and dying at your own pace.
A little goes a long way, prevention (of death) is the only goal.
God is dead.
Pleasure is good.
Although the domain reaches from the edge of stoicism to the edge of Atheism,
It is unacceptable to proper use of impressions.
Much like God is unacceptable to Atheism.
The academics are much more subtle in there antinaturalism and Atheism.
They both preach neutrality, and acceptance of other.
The logic is sound, but the expression of passion is mute.
Surely, the experience leaves much to be desired in real life.
She is my rain.
I drove her like I drove the car.
I always did what was needed but it was within my limits.
I was willing to take risks but within my own experience and expertise.
So, in the public’s eyes, I was not a success,
Writing was my dream come true, everyday, in everyway.
For a job or vocation, it was adequate.
But for a thing, I was able to love it more than any other thing.
The book sale downtown is too tempting to resist.
My four purchases all range in topics related to Tolkien.
Do you like to journal? Have you ever thought about specializing in a journal topic?
If so, google “A Hobbit’s Journal from the collection of Sam Gamgee” by illustrator Michael Green.
Do you like Tolkien and Trivia?
Pick up a copy of William Mackay’s book, “The Essential Tolkien, Trivia and Quiz Book: A Middle -earth Miscellany.
How about “a reader’s companion to The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings”?
Lastly, “The Man Who Created The Lord of the Rings” by Michael Coren, do you want to read an autobiography on J.R.R. Tolkien?
I could tell you what I am doing with all these books, but that would be no fun.
Maybe, one of the titles will inspire a purchase at your local ( vintage book section ) bookstore.
Good luck with your literary adventures.
Drinking coffee and waiting for final spin…
Multitasking, cooking chicken legs and doing dish while laundry drys.
Need to be at moms by ten, two hour project.
On treadmill till then, but going for wine and pizza at moms.
Back by two to prepare for the week,
Wind down before bed, read and write with no device!
And spicy add on’s like meals, exercise, music, research, blogging and philosophy, etc

I have been doing a journal most of my life.

Living the Good Life.
To keep doing all the good habits,
Some belief systems will break up the whole into steps and
habits that regulate the body, mind, heart and soul. This is a purpose and brings meaning into my life right this second till the day I die.
To learn from all the mistakes, challenges, changes and up and downs are a tall order.
And to accept it all and move on is easier said than doing it.
But it is quite a thrill ride!
