For my 50’s birthday I got breast cancer!  For my 60’s I’m hoping to find love, laughter and new experiences.  It started well with an audience with the Dalai Lama.

I’m travelling throughout India, wrapping up the experiences into memories that I can look back on with a smile in the brief interval between middle age and senility.

I recently read a quote from the Dalai Lama; very powerful words:

“Man surprises me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

We all need to earn a living, but perhaps there are ways of getting what we need without sacrificing our health, happiness and life.
