After a week, I was released from hospital on Friday. I was not expecting to be admitted. I had gone to St George Hospital to get a second opinion, after I had been categorically diagnosed as having cirrhosis (hardening of the liver)by doctors at Wollongong Hospital.

Climate Change may well be the end of the line. Who knew that the collapse of civilized vlaues, particularly those related to epistemology, would be the precursor of the collapse of life as we know it on Earth?

Dog Blog: Around While We Can. August 20, 2018

I keep on meeting Buddha. I wish he would get off my case. His appearance is more metaphysical than physical. I went to see the doctor at the hospital – he was not Buddha – he matter of factly said, I do not expect you to be alive in five years. That is what he expects with a person with my condition to live. I have organized for a second opinion, but I would be surprised if the diagnosis was radically changed.

I am guessing on the basis of the references that the writer may well be Michael Nagler, but nevertheless the quote is from the Metta Center for Nonviolence – Daily Metta.

I can claim no originality here, since this post is an extended quote from Chris Hedges. The problem is to understand President Trump.

Dog Blog Revival July 28, 2018

The significant other who tells it like it is, informs me that the photos of the dogs on their walk were repetitive. However, I have been pretty crook lately, and could not take them out – entirely due to my own doing I believe. So rather than to be overcome by negative feedback loops, and perhaps contrary to sound medical advice, I took Dexter and Hannah out today.

The dog blog has become much more straightforward. I have taken the course of least resistance, now that U discover I can put almost all the photos I have taken and it it not too long. Furthermore, the photos are a self indulgence.

2018: “How Are You?” January 18, 2018

There has been a lapse of two months. The photos overwelm me. There is just too many of them. This video I am posting was created through Microsoft. It is far from a consciousness effort, but hopefully to those few who may be interested, it may have some value.

As November gets underway, looking back at October and the months before, it is hard to remember how dry it was. Now we have teeming rain, hail, thunder and lightning and the grass is green.

Final Days in September October 1, 2017

I have forgotten when we last had rain. It seems there were record falls in March. July, August and September, at least to my recollection, have been without rain. And that means we might expect bush fires, and we should have a plan to meet that contingency.

Last Days of July August 3, 2017

I was walking a few kilometers every day. I thought I was going OK. Dexter and Hannah express disappointment if I do not take them out. Then I was undermined what I thought at the time would be a critical injury. I seemed to tear my knee and the muscles. I had difficulty getting out of a chair. The remedy, after going to the doctor was, simple and almost immediately effective. The application of anti-inflammatory gel worked almost immediately.

There are two separate realms of concern and at times failure of intuition, especially in relation to dogs and to human beings. There seems to be agreement that walking is good for dogs and for humans.

June is gone for this year. Next year she is due to return. The Earth keeps turning, which is gives us the opportunity, at least as a species, to look ahead and consider the record of the past.

I know what it is like to kick the earth, or at least a piece of wood. I thought my toe would never recover. I looked around, of course, for someone to blame and there were two dogs pulling on the lead. I bit my tongue in the metaphoric sense, and kept walking.

Life is transient and apparently effervescent. As humans, like other animals, we well designed for life’s practicalities. Dexter and Hannah do not worry about such things. They just live their lives.
