Human Race Humour

A little girl asked her mother: 'How did the human race appear?' The mother answered, 'God made Adam and Eve; they had children; and so was all mankind made.' Two days later the girl asked her father the same question.

The father answered, 'Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human
race evolved.' The confused girl returned to her mother and said, 'Mum, how is it possible that you told me the human race was created by God, and Dad said they developed from monkeys?'

The mother answered, 'Well, Dear, it is very simple.
I told you about my side of the family, and your father told you about his.'

Choosing Death ...

Powerful and sensitive playwright, C.N. Taylor, courageously tackles a rarely spoken of end of life challenge in Unforgettable . This moving play is now being presented in Murphys, California, in the heart of the Mother Lode.

When independent, determined healthy, intelligent, and aging Henry chose to end his life, he turned to his only daughter for support.

I had stayed with my father while he purposefully made his exit from this world. It was a difficult experience for me, yet at times quite joyous. I was left with a feeling of profound respect for a man I loved dearly and with whom I disagreed on just about everything.

After years of family suffering as his wife of many decades passed slowly and painfully away, he had a different plan.

Life is a garden ...

life is a garden,
not a road
we enter and exit
through the same gate
where we go matters less
than what we notice

Wise Words & Wolves

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, 'My son, the battle is between two 'wolves' inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.'

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: 'Which wolf wins?'

The old Cherokee simply replied, 'The one you feed.'
