Had a good day on and of and I visited a historic home.
My interests are National Trust, English Heritage and Historic Houses the two former we have been life members for years and years and now we are running out of areas to visit. We can always find things that interest us and we always find something that stands out and gives us a kick.
Life in a way is just like that, we wander through the years, then decades and as long as we find something that interests or extends knowledge that seems to keep us going and I suppose we should be given something to keep us occupied.
Everyone should be the same, if they are lucky, and it is important that we extend ourselves and hopefully that should give us further reasons to be able to extend our years.
Generally I find the older oldies that keep their interests alive the longer they survive. One problem is that when their time comes the end can be more quick and dramatic. Generally it is that we all hope to happen to us, no pain and a quick end.
Sometimes I wonder when we are depressed, our lives may be shortened because we wish ourselves to an early end. Could it be a blessing if we could be given a prescription for the time and the interests that we wish to follow. So you may like gardening or swimming. The medication is the activity and the pleasure we derive from it. I sometimes wonder if we instead of taking medications out of a tablet box for the day, we were given a ticket to perform our interests instead of our multi coloured medications.
Just a thought
