Death is a natural event, and only fools and children are scared of natural events." Some thing you don't seek, but they are not going to rule your life either

    Look forward to you getting your first ten posts and moving on to full membership when you can post in the workshops and we can see some of your writing.
    The breakdown occurs at the definition of 'reasonable'.

    Not so much a breakdown as a variable. For example, my granddaughter who is a fit healthy three year old, will return to nursery today, albeit with reduced numbers and some distancing. I, who have a condition that involves me taking immunosuppressants and am seventy five, am maintaining isolation. 'Reasonable' should be defined as taking circumstances into account and making an assessment, not as one size suits all.

    A quick thought on God and gender: What use would a purely spiritual being have for gender? It's not going to reproduce, nor does It have any reason to excrete waste. God is God. Alpha, Omega, and All That Is.
