    The Death of My Brother, but not his great lesson

    "Help others and doors shall open for you without even expecting them to ever open." ~ This true story truly needs no prose, font, or 'Bold' to make it ring alive. It sinks and sails to the words my father taught us, as he told of giving his jacket off his own back to a homeless man at the railroad track. He just couldn't walk away, or look past. He had to act. "Act." Your brother "Acted" and showed true "Love." And there is nothing that conquers All better than true love. Thank you for sharing such a personal and profound accounting, one that I will share with you every July 5th, as I remember Love that Still lives. For you, your brother, my father, and the anonymous man with big, big eyes.

    #1 I had to share this, @Ali Anani! As Milos Djukic commented, any further words are superfluous.

    I have only to add that my husband did similar thing as your late brother, and the door opened when it was most needed.

    Music can do so much for each and every one of us.

    Take a look and see what lessons this song has to teach thee.

    I call it the perfect companion piece to John Lennon's Imagine for a reason. Take a read to find out why.

    You hooked me with the paddle picture @Don Kerr... the discussion of fate, etc. hooked me further and should spur some great discussion. I so much appreciate discussions with people who see something outside of themselves (a higher power, etc.) rather than those who think all wisdom comes from within themselves. I've had my internal wisdom proved wrong several times by a higher power - usually my wife.

    Thought provoking post, @Don Kerr, which I'm still mulling over. You have doubtless sown the seeds of argument in the minds of many. Dame Fortuna, aka Lady Luck, aka the will of whatever god we may choose to worship, or not, crosses our palms with silver gifts, good or bad, from time to time. The challenge is to accept these as opportunities to grow.

    This statement stands out for me "He told me that I must use it. A dry paddle is of little use.". I relate it to life itself. While we are on earth, we should make the most of it and that includes caring about our fellow man. Otherwise, what's the use? Your story, @Don Kerr sends a message that should be taken to heart. Thank you for sharing with us.

    Some societies tend to accept fate more than others in my experience. They say they leave it (the situation they are in for example) to the Almighty. I am sometimes puzzled with this attitude. If they can do something about their situation, why don't they do it? And yet there are others who say 'God will help those who help themselves first'. Great post @Don Kerr.

    "Somewhere between fate and free will lies reality." I couldn't agree more! This was a very interesting read @Don Kerr. Your a great writer and this really stood out, "As we were talking I was thinking about how in life so much of what we do is similar to travels in a canoe. Sometimes it is smooth paddling and we relax while enjoying the silence and smooth rhythm of our strokes. Other times we venture into fast-running water and have to skilfully navigate the rapids. This is when our skills must be top notch and our judgement as well must guide us as we determine whether to run the rapids or head to shore to portage." Great analogy because life sure does come with many bumps along the way when we aren't on the smooth paved, road. I can't wait to see photos and hear about the Christening of your paddle. What a wise man your friend is! Thanks for sharing this story.

    Like @Gert Scholtz I read your buzz twice, and I'm sure if I read it again I will find different meanings and insights. I think to some extent we all encounter Dame Fortuna as we prepare to put pen to paper, and sometimes she would lead us off in totally different directions. Looking forward to your musings from Muskoka! And remember, a paddle is not a paddle unless it paddles!

    Undoubtedly one of the very best books ever. It is a game changer and a must read for anyone serious about excellent literature. He is one of my literary heroes. Also love the episode about 'poatatis salad'. The wiener cart bit too is gut splitting. And right in your neighbourhood @Gerald Hecht. @Gert Scholtz you must get this book. #5
