"Americans used to say where there's a will, there's a way. Nowadays, it's where there's a pill, there's a way out." - - Burnt Toast


Hey y'all, I am back.  We got The Popsicle home last week and he is recuperating nicely and feeling much better.  After a week in the hospital this is what you would expect, because isn't this the whole idea of going in the first place?  So they can fix what ails ya?  In his case they did and I feel better about his future at least over the short and medium term.  The inevitable is there, somewhere, and it'll be a big loss once Pop takes off for the motherland of the afterlife.

Alas, such is life, isn't it?  We're all just here to die eventually, but it's that in-between, that time in the middle of life where life's true purpose comes into play.  You can analyze living until the cows come home, but I think the true purpose, beyond making more people, is to touch and influence the lives around you in a positive manner.  Whether it be through words or deeds or maybe even some great technological discovery that changes the world it is imperetive that we continue to spread the values and principles that makes human life unique.  Although most of us are destined to lead normal lives and won't be recipients of the Nobel Prize for medicine or peace, we can comfort ourselves with the knowledge that when our bretheren, relatives, spouses or complete strangers are in need, that we will be there for them fully.  This is the value of life.

And even near the end, those who remain full of will, spirit, and goodness in their heart, continue to share and influence positively.
