Answer for question 4250.

Have you ever yelled at an authority figure? If so, what was the reason, what did you say, and what happened afterwards? If not, was there a time you wish you had but didn't?
I only found the courage to scream at authorities about ten years after i acquired the wisdom to know that that is usually a bad idea.

They almost all, certainly all powerful political and business leaders, deserve to be yelled and screamed at, but what would be the point? They will still abuse their power so others would not be better off.

Answer for question 4252.

Do you live by any motto or philosophy? If so, what is it? Why does this resonate with you?
Yes; and it changes from day to day because there are so many of them out there -- in folk wisdom, in Sufi poetry, in all the mystical traditions, in the Tao Te Ching. Today its this: All is well because "...all will be well and all manner of thing will be well." (Julian of Norwich)

I like it because it partakes of the perennial wisdom that it is consciousness rather than force that most guides the universe and consciousness is perennially striving for goodness rather than nihilism or evil. And there is so much evidence right now that it is stupidity that is guiding things and i don't want to believe that!

Hospital, Day 17

Dianne looks and acts much stronger today, healthier and less ,,, well not less sad or morose,  she was never that...but less "un-upbeat."  There is still no decision about when she will leave the hospital or whether she will go home or elsewhere for rehab.  But i believe a decision is closer now -- perhaps tomorrow or Thursday.  All is well..
