Here’s a magnificent man who proves growing older can be joyful and fun.

And here’s Spirit

posticon The End of Life by John Cali

Posted on   by

Last weekend around the dinner table, I was talking to some of my family about death. Not a subject most people want to sit around casually discussing at dinner. But death comes to us all, and we all think about it, at least now and then. Not necessarily in a somber, macabre way, but in simply acknowledging death is part of life.

Just yesterday we published a blog post, Politics As Usual. Here’s part of what I said in that post:

“I don’t pay much attention to politics and political news because it’s often so negative and adversarial. You know, politics as usual. This is especially true of my country, the United States. And it’s probably true of other countries.”

As many of you know, the current US presidential campaign has turned into a nasty, negative, and hostile thing. But today that changed, at least for the moment — because of the human tragedy unfolding in Aurora, Colorado, where many dozens were killed or wounded in a seemingly senseless act of violence.… Read more
