Subject: RE: Thought For The Day March 1st
Thanks, Little Neo. You're right, she was an inspiration to many, including me. The experience of going through that with her has also prepared me for the rest of my life. My new wife Bonnie is amazed at how I can face just about every problem with equanimity. My perspective is that if nobody's dying, then there's no reason to panic. If somebody is dying, then panicking won't do any good anyway, so why bother? The main lesson applicable in this thread is that humor beats the sh*t out of depression. I can also testify that music can help you survive anything. It's an escape that doesn't give you a hangover, although sore fingers or hoarseness are a distinct risk *BG*.
