MANILA, Philippines—Recent Life events remind us of the following (and what we are doing or trying to do) in reverse life order, that is, unless you’re a reincarnate:

  1. Co-op funeral care
  2. Co-op death care (these co-op ads are swak, don’t you think?)
  3. Co-op retirement and/or retirement homes . . . by the beach (who says you can’t be picky)
  4. Co-op hospitals and healthcare (or foodcare, hopefully, i.e. more focus on food-as-medicine)
  5. Why be gung-ho about tech — Because it allows us all to win, and more quickly, and all at the same time
  6. Why be gung-ha about coops — Because it’s the only imperfect thing that is perfect enuf in an imperfect socio-economic world
  7. Why be gung-he about bitcoin — Because it’s a different way to appreciate time-energy in the space-time we grew up with

As we feel longer knee and/or shoulder recoveries after gym (or, sort of) or pool, or like Madam Marie Curie discover new allergies that never existed before, may we smell the santan as if they are roses. Or, Guns n’ Roses. One’s work is enough, because we do it together


Condolences and blessings of 210% recovery and strength for all: “‘But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the Lord.”  Jeremiah 30:17 (NIV)

Thank you.
