Hypochondria – The Disease Of The Elderly

I am in the class of people politely referred to as ‘Senior.’ When I was young I thought Senior meant really old, fragile, frail, sickly, helpless. Today I understand Senior as that stage of life before Elderly. Senior is a prelude to an honest understanding of illness and mortality. Senior is that time of life where we begin to examine the ailments we will experience as elderly. I used to be a hypochondriac, but now I think I have something much worse. – it is called aging.

Son, Healthy spirituality – what is it?  What does it look like?  What is at the root?  A discussion like this leads to a discussion on generally healthy behaviors.  This leads to discussion on co-dependency, drug addiction, and other destructive behaviors.  Notice how I conveniently lumped different maladies together?  This is where the discussion often […]

Animal Rights vs Wildlife Management

Son, We live in a crowded world.  There are many lifeforms competing for the same land, water, and air.  But we happen to be humans – so get out of the way other lifeforms.  That has been the human motto for thousands of years.  But I think we have pushed too hard. Wildlife is now […]
