Municipal Elections 2018: Four more years!

Victoria voting elected Lisa Help as mayor who was endorsed by David Suzuki to clean up this city for the future.

The progressive mandate gives all an opportunity to cooperate and collaborate in a positive vision for a better Victoria.

The inclusion will create challenges that require patience and understanding by the majority for a safe sustainable lifestyle for all.

With so many people working together greater accomplishments are possible and probable for this capital city.

The Scent Of Religion

The association is strong with people and culture.

To understand humanity is to understand and accept religion within each of our limitations.

Not all people believe the supernatural aspects of a belief, but many love the ceremony, community and art embodied in all religious ways.

It’s true that there are difficulties in accepting the whole package.

Atheists are borne out of a strong desire to live without supernatural belief.

Many people have a good sense of skepticism in their day to day lives.

There is a lot more we have in common than we are different.

Science and philosophy attempt to fill the gap.

But we all look for answers.

And platitudes are mostly empty answers or partial at best.

So, the struggle to live and thrive is still a good goal.

I hope you continue to discover meaning and purpose for your entire life.

Insomnia

Everyone has had a bout of it.

Everyone knows what it is.

But it is a chronic problem in society today which is screaming for social changes.

We need clinics, education and to adopt good policies to prevent further harm.

If you want to look after yourself, read this article.

Daylight Saving Time (DLS)

Seeing the ‘big picture’ with DLS seems to be about agreement on society’s need.

Most argue about the pros and cons but most go with the flow because of it’s basic need to produce a working schedule.

Like it or not, it is time to prepare for the time change,

With all the stuff we do these days it is nice to have a heads up.

If for some crazy reason you want more information, it is simple to google the date and time for your location.

After reading all about it on Wikipedia, you may want to check out the article to settle your own mind about some pro or con about this silly but necessary change.

Stephen Lewis

Inspiration to save the world.

And yet, another honorary degree.

Only a year ago, a call to improve ourselves in the best way we know how.

A tribute to a humble and proud Canadian, who implores us all to be our best.

Moral Conundrum

She lapsed with her virtues…

He made his own bed, now he has to live in it…

To be human means vice and virtue, how to forgive and forget…

It is real for you and me.

What is the social contract?

Where are we today, collectively and as an individual?

Do no harm, admit mistakes, forgive and forget (even myself), much easier said than done, but that’s the challenge!
