TRICK OR TREAT!!!


What keeps you awake at night?


Things that go bump in the night?

Or is it something scarier?

Ghosts, goblins and vampires?

No, not so scary.

Mad dogs, snakes and spiders?

Maybe.

But what really keeps you awake at night? What really scares you?

Perhaps it is the weight of the world that seems to fall on your shoulders at times.

Perhaps it is the fear of the unknown future that gapes in front of you.

Perhaps it is self doubt.

Perhaps it is a secret that you are not particularly proud of.

Perhaps it is shame for an unjustice that you are responsible for.

Perhaps it is disappointment that you could have been a better human being.

Yes, these are the real scary things. These are the things that keep us awake at night.

But anyway, maybe we can all do better next year.

Happy Halloween!!!

    I take it you are talking about demons for big people. Yes indeed, they are scary.

    Hey doc. I'll bet you got some pharmaceutical solutions for these kinds of demons.

    Yes indeed, we have some very impressive pharmaceuticals. They do miracles to relieve symtoms for some and to give badly needed sleep to others. But, sorry to say, not usually a great long term solution for most. Have you ever heard of drug addiction? I would rather not contribute to that problem if I can avoid it. The demons we speak of now, the ones that most fight with rather than enjoying peaceful sleep, are usually self induced. Drugs are not really a great option.
