winter closing in

Shit. We might get some snow showers tonight, but that shouldn't be dire. However, by this weekend, we may well get some accumulation.

I age 40 years then, from 20 years below my actual age to 20 years higher. I can cycle everywhere for hours, skilfully, but when arthritis kicks in, the amount of walking needed to do one's errands, visit clients and friends etc gets painful. And this is essential to stay in shape.

I don't know how to cope with this fucking crap every year. Grrrrrrr.

Unrelated: the "Issues Pages" are hopelessly out of date.

Humanist (and freethinking) life and death ceremonies

I saw this piece on humanist funerals from the British Humanist Federation, recalling friends and family who were either non-believers or people outside organised religion, whose memory was subjected to a conventional religious ceremony.

https://humanism.org.uk/ceremonies/non-religious-funerals/

My friend the cycling and environmental activist Claire Morissette had deeply spiritual beliefs, but they didn't fall into a particular religious faith. She actually wrote her own funeral (she had cancer that was becoming untreatable).

Of course everyone doesn't have that (rather unwelcome) leisure, or the inclination to write one's own funeral. But what can we do to ensure our wishes are respected?
