Ha! Ha! Jerry’s friend, Jim, sent him this link that asks you a bunch of questions and then it tells you how long you can plan on living. They ask if you wear a seatbelt, eat your veggies, don’t smoke, don’t drink too much, exercise etc. etc. One question on history of heart disease in the family…No questions about current health condition….And according to this thing, I’m going to live a long, long time…about 35 more years. Are you paying attention, Sean and Erin? Bet you didn’t think you would be stuck with me for THAT long.
Check out the quiz yourself if you want. It was fun.
Next, link…Margi Miller, a good Florida friend, sent me assorted podcasts and videos that I am watching bit by bit…a beautiful talk by Eckhart Tolle, some great music, and the one below that looked so much like what I see at MD Anderson. It was taken at Cleveland Clinic…beautiful and so very true. I know these people. I meet them every day. It blew me away.
We went to Gravity yesterday. I have been a space nut ever since I went to Space Camp about fifteen years ago. Loved the movie. Loved George Clooney (of course) and thought Sandra Bullock did a great job. And obviously the cinematography was incredible. Great afternoon amusement. We need to do it more often. There are some fabulous movies out there that we haven’t seen yet.
Sending you a couple pictures (I despise pictures of myself but I know that it’s fun to see them and know I’m not dead yet)
The first is from yesterday’s walk…I have on my “Calli wig”. Need to have a little variety in my life.
The other is from the end of yoga this morning. Just got a card and long sleeve tee from the Venice yoga people yesterday. Lucky me to have so many good people in my life.
Getting ready to watch the Patriots. I need to get out for a quick walk before I settle down for the game. Hope nothing major happens in the next half hour or so.
Finally, I need to tell you that your comments yesterday were so supportive and thoughtful and on target. I think I hit a nerve with lots of you because all of us have an idea how we want our life to play out and rarely do things go exactly the way we want. We are all trying to not “live stupid”, aren’t we? And trying to make good decisions and trying to live every day to the fullest. And some days are better than others and some days are a mess. But we do our best. And we can’t ask anything more of ourselves than that.
Finally…saw this on Facebook this morning..
