the luck of the draw

... how times have changed, I thought my fortune
was bad, but in the longrun it was good

... when I was young, I thought it would be a cool
dream to be something like a pro football player,
or martial artist, or whatever other male fantasy
that was pushed at the time

... now I read that almost all the players, except
the kickers :-), are suffering from brain traumas
of one sort or another, leading to a high incidence
of early dementia

... even things that used to be considered safe
medecines, the benzodiazaprines, like Xanax, etc.
are now revealing an ugly side. Long term use
leads to early Alzheimers in 40% of people.
Lucky I couldn't afford it.

... you want to keep your mind, the body can
be let go, in favor of the mind

... we are all going to die, eventually from one
thing or another, so try to keep your mind and
conciousness intact, right until the very end

... conciousness is as close to understanding
God as we can get, so keep it until the very end
