Good Morning!!

There is an article in the NY Times today on Zen and Alzheimer's, on how we might gently cope with those who are aging, especially since in ten or twenty years, some of us may, also, be there.   I sit with that, with how much none of us want to be a burden or out of own control, and I "try" to sit loosely with this day, and how I might let myself unfold within it, and keep all my circuits flowing as clearly as is possible for me right now.

There is another article on how this may all be someone else's computer simulation.  Now that is something to consider, and somehow I don't think so.  I sat and enjoyed the stars last night.  I saw one shooting star, just enough.   Why would anyone but I set up such a scenario?

I feel the preciousness of life more and more these days and the turn to fall.  I am reminded now of a poem by Stanley Kunitz.  I will look for it and place it here.

Happy Tuesday!   I am continually with "if I had ten more minutes to live, what would I be doing?"   Perhaps it is age, but I do better with that than one year to live, one week, one day.   Ten minutes!!   I suppose it is like carrying one dollar bills in your wallet instead of 20's.  You seem rich!
