Cid69 Philosophy 101


I was reading the blog “Backroad Chronicles” last night and Joy was describing their visit to the Strong Hearts Native Society Pow Wow. She said that she could now “mark off another item on “life’s list of things to do””.

Someone told me long ago that “crossing off something on life’s list” was a very negative way to think about things. Crossing things off a list implies that the list is finite and at some point there would be nothing left on the list. What happens to life then? Is it over?

A much more positive approach would be to add something new to our list of life experiences. Think about it. This way the number of experiences can be infinite. I certainly realize that my time on earth is not infinite but I prefer that the opportunity to experience new things is.

Muffler Man and philosophy…this guy is DEEP!

Thanks for visiting.

Thanks for the birthday wishes. I agree with what you say about crossing things of a list. It does seem like a countdown to the end. I am still wondering what I am going to do with my life. If all goes well I may live another 25 years and I don't have a list but I am interested in what they will bring and feel reasonably positive about getting older. In fact I don't think I would want to go back in years. Each age has its merits.
