Choosing Life And Finding Meaning 30 Days After Dave's Tragic Death

Choosing Life And Finding Meaning 30 Days After Dave's Tragic Death | Scoops for me | Scoop.it
I think when tragedy occurs, it presents a choice. You can give in to the void, the emptiness that fills your heart, your lungs, constricts your ability to think or even breathe. Or you can try to find meaning.

How Different Cultures Understand Time

How Different Cultures Understand Time | Scoops for me | Scoop.it

In Western Europe, the Swiss attitude to time bears little relation to that of neighboring Italy. Thais do not evaluate the passing of time in the same way that the Japanese do. In Britain the future stretches out in front of you. In Madagascar it flows into the back of your head from behind.
