I can’t believe that we are halfway through November already. How did that happen? The weather is still crazy. It has been a very wet spring. We have only had a handful of dry, sunny days. Sunday and Monday it was wet and windy and so cold we had heaters on nearly all day. It even snowed in parts of Tasmania, not here because we are on the coast, but we did have some hail. What is going on with the weather?
This week is a philosophical (chewy) question week.
In your opinion, what should be humanity’s goal?
I must admit that I had never given this a lot of thought, but I think that our goal should be to be kind to each other and to our planet and to continue to learn new things.
Are you hesitant to speak your opinions?
Sometimes. I don’t like conflict so sometimes I prefer to keep my opinions to myself when I talk to people. However, I will give it more freely when I write.
In what ways has society changed during your lifetime? What do you think caused these changes?
It has changed a lot. I hate to say it, but people seem more selfish, stupid, and more willing to believe what they want to hear. Maybe that’s not new but because of wider and more rapid communications these days. I do think that social media is the cause of a lot of this. We used to be told “Think before you speak.” Now it should be “Think before you Tweet.”
If you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way that you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow this person to be your friend?
I don’t think I am nasty to myself so I’m not sure how to answer this.
GRATITUDE SECTION (as always, optional)
Yesterday we had to go to the hospital at Burnie for an appointment. We’d never been there before so we were grateful that the hospital has volunteers who will give directions and even walk you to the place you must go so that you don’t get lost. A very nice lady there did that for us and even helped us sort out our masks as we are not used to wearing them.
