Evening -

We watched John and Elizabeth Edwards on 60 Minutes tonight.  I thought they presented well that we are all going to die.  It seems something that is often ignored in our society.  I have found myself going back to my old ways, and so this last few days feels like a wake-up call to remember that each moment is an eternity and best lived as though it is the last.

I don't know what will happen politically for the two of them, but their message will stay with us.  I also realize that they have to do this.  Otherwise the cancer will have won.  That is what they are saying.  They both choose life, and I say, good for them. 

William James said:

        "I believe there is no source of deception in the investigation of nature which can compare with a fixed belief that certain kinds of phenomena are impossible."

I hope their belief in her continuing health will create a miracle and add to her years.  I see that her sitting home coddling herself is not the best way and tonight I feel they are choosing well.  They see it as about service.   That seems a noble goal.   Maybe the face of politics can change.  I hope so.  Of late, it has seemed focused on power, insanity, and greed.
