About Me:
I am an 82-year-old curmudgeon; I like the 1500s spelling best and definition:
"An ill-tempered (and frequently old) person full of stubborn ideas or opinions."
I evolved from faith in superstition to behavioral scientist. I am a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, a survivor of breast cancer thanks to the fine diagnostic work and treatment at Spokane's Providence Health & Services and Cancer Care Northwest, which included surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Dreadful stuff, but a wake up to living each and every minute.
Life is meant to remember the past, live in the present and remember a preferred future. One can be good without god! My family demonstrates it.
I bring to my community a worldliness that challenges attitudes and norms of a parochial and insular power structure. I traveled to 32 nations in the Western, Eastern, Northern and Southern Hemispheres interviewing women about their family and work lives, their health care, education, social structure, child and elder care, depression, and anxiety, and family violence. I had to be subtle when seeking information about violence. People do not like to reveal their vulnerabilities.

Taking on the Generative Stage of Life, Waiting to die

Posted on July 4, 2018 at 12:40am 0 Comments

The next step in this progression from birth through death, I am at the closing-down-my-home-of-42-years-stage!

A friend asked my daughter who was moving; her reply: 

"My mom has 40+ years of items that she kept, all well organized though, plus mountains of paperwork from her business and teaching and giving speeches, and genealogy records from both sides of her parents dating back centuries, and old photographs…

I am glad to join Atheist Nexus, thank you! I like these philosophers, but I did not read too much of them - of their writings, a book or two. My best friend (also an atheist) is a philosopher (graduated), he explains me too many things. I become an atheist through biology, in Rio de Janeiro Federal University, after being educated in 2 religions: catholicism and omooloko. I loose faith in 2004 july.

I have companions here. In internet I discovered other atheists in 2008. Personally I met a group of them since 2012, with the RDF bus campaingn. We are friends up to now.

Pleased to meet you Joan, and congrats for your life story.

Joan,  you sound like your usually sharp witted,  smiling self. I'm happy about that. I'm adjusting. I've just gone through the worst year of my life but I'm coming out the other side now. We had one long wet winter. It started raining the last week of November and didn't stop ( unless it was to snow) until about three weeks ago. I thought I was going to lose my mind. I rarely left the house. I Didn't  leave the house unless I had to.

Hi Joan,  I was just scanning through and saw where you had posted for Carl. So he's still missing ?  I too hope he's safe and sound. 

And how are you doing dear friend? Well it appears and your garden is lovely. Kathy

Joan,

Wow did I have some very negative experiences. The eighties was not the time to let people know you didn’t believe in god. I had troubles with girlfriends, and all friends. I was popular in College. I was a DJ, but many people tried to get me to convert. Told me I was going to hell. Some fights even. I know Taekwondo so no problems there. It’s getting better every decade. Finding the millennial’s are non-believers. I think I came out too early. It caused me a lot of problems. It’s ashamed. I just don’t know, but I know I don’t believe in a 2,000 year old book. Thanks for letting me in. I will maybe set up a blog.

Doug Monka

GoodMorning, Joan. Thank you for the welcome. I’m embarrassed to admit, but I just figured out how to reply & can’t find the comment from the email. I will have to figure out how to use this site. Im excited to meet new like minded people,

Thanks for the welcome, Joan. It often seems to be the case that fantasies and delusions encroach more severely upon one's mind as one ages, especially those fantasies pertaining to "life everlasting". But for me, the opposite has been true. I'm much less tolerant of delusion now than I was when I was young. At least, I think I am. I wouldn't really know, would I? :-(
