Oh no – the election

Oh no – the election – for forty days and forty nights! 

We are going to be entertained with mud-slinging, lies, spin and character assault by all the different parties against each other on TV.

For forty days and forty nights.

Well that’s what our prime minister said. I wondered whose suffering he was alluding to, his or ours.

The number forty also had great symbolic meaning to the Jews and today among Christians and Muslims as well.  The number forty to the Jews is a number that, when used in terms of time, represents a period of probation, trial, and chastisement.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
