“Immortality is a long shot, I admit. But somebody has to be first.”
Random thoughts and other things.
Just wondering……Is there a female Sperm Whale?
SPEAKING OF THE WEATHER…………HOW HOT IS IT?
“And the humidity. Jesus. I’d gotten a whiff of it as I left the jet, and it was like a hot sponge had punched a hole in my chest and burrowed straight into my lungs.”
From “Sacred” by Dennis Lehne.
Way to go Dennis. That just about sums it up.
I know it. Everybody knows it. The human spirit is amazing. I shouldn’t be surprised by it anymore and yet I am.
We were in a bit of a funk several weeks ago. Life had dealt us a blow. Seemed major at the time but now…………..depends on the perspective. While we continue to deal with a situation that, to us, is difficult, it pales in comparison to what others contend with every day.
A friend of ours has been living a nightmare for several years. Health issues. Things beyond their control. Even worse, there seems to be no end in sight. For them, there is little relief. Indeed, problems are compounded. Without going into the details, suffice to say, any of us would be severely tested enduring similar situations.
Ever wonder how you would respond if tested? I have and I sense I would fail the test. Not everybody has a super spirit. Not everybody has a high tolerance for pain.
