Agno-stoicism

This is an excellent read. A bit long but very interesting.

I used to describe myself as an agnostic. Might I now turn into an agno-stoic? smiley - huh

Life and death

My dad was born 17 November 1919, but he died only 53 years and 50 days later. I am now close to 14 years older than him.

Only a couple of days ago I lost my ex-mother-in-law. She was 94 and had caught pneumonia a few days before and that was that. She was somewhat demented in her last years, but apart from that making her confused from time to time she was neither sad nor aggressive as some demented may well become.

As one of my sisters put it: She had the age for it but her death can make you "melancho-sad" anyway.

Life and death are strange occurrences sometimes.

Talk to me about life

I exchanged opinions with unknown acquaintances on a stock trader site (I dabble a little in stock trade with whatever lose change I have in my pocketses).
Many expressed hope of buying the right stock so they could retire from work and do what they wanted.
One of us said: - I actually did this, but it turned out not to be what I had hoped for. My identity seems to be too closely defined by what I work with. So I am back in the job market again, even though it is not necessary - and I enjoy it every day!
But he added that he was aware this might only apply to him and that we others had to think and feel whatever we wanted.
So we did. And agreed that it is individual for the individual.
I told them I retired six years ago and still have something meaningful to get out of bed for every single day: Life.
It pleased me muchly that several people liked this comment. It's not what you would normally expect from a site like this smiley - winkeye
