What mythical creature would improve the world most if it existed? (If you don’t know, just choose something that you think would improve things )
I am sure that a team of fairies would bring a great deal of magic into the world. Each family would be assigned one and with the wave of her magic wand, she would improve every imperfection in the home. These fairies would also sit in parliament and make sure no corruption occurred. The fairies would also ensure that everybody engaged in work that they enjoyed and they would be around to sort out any problems that would crop up in people’s lives.
Sadly this is not going to happen and it is really only the human race that can improve things if only they would. There seem to be two forces working against each other – GOOD and EVIL. There are plenty of good people trying to make a difference and then those evil ones who spoil it all. The answer is to get the good guys into leadership and then there would be no need for a mythical creature to make it all better.
Should the death penalty be reinstated? Why or why not?
I don’t think we have the right to take a life. But perhaps a lifetime in prison is an even worse punishment. I have no idea.
There are so many criminals in the world which begs the question, why? Why are prisons full of convicted people and yet crime still exists out there? We live in a sick society where too many people are without hope. Too many suffer from poverty, abuse and mental illness. Let’s not forget about the effect of drugs on behaviour too. Sort out the social problems and you will sort out crime.
Spontaneity Or Stability?
Oh, spontaneity is much more fun! But we need both don’t we? It depends on what time of life you are at. When you don’t have to go to work, care for others in the family and have the time then go for spontaneity. So first create stability and then let go and be spontaneous.
Can a dog/cat suffer? What about an ant? What about a plant? What about a bacteria cell? Why do some humans think we’re the only species that does suffer? Your thoughts?
Of course, creatures can suffer and it is a disgrace to be the cause of it. However, getting into whether we should care about harmful insects and bacteria cells suffering would be going a bit far. Self-preservation is important too. Thank the creatures and plants you have to eat and make sure whatever you do is done sustainably. There is a fine balance in nature and we have to take care not to upset it for fear that we might wipe our own species out. For example, if bees cease to exist the planet will die too.
What are two things that have brightened your day today?
My domestic helper cheered me up considerably and left my house a haven of cleanliness. She also brought her new baby who is the cutest little creature.
We have the Earl’s proteges staying with us for a few days. These young men learned to fish with the Earl from the age of ten and now have their own commercial fishing business. After spending weeks fishing in the deep what do you think they do when they take a few days’ break? Go beach fishing of course!
