Letter to My Grandson

 I very much like "Letter to my Grandson." Thank you. I would offer only two comments. One, we lose everything we become attached to and everything we don't become attached to, not almost everything -- that's life. Two, pain is transitional, as you say -- pain like joy is transitional, with another or more pain or joy to follow. There is no painless living. We have choice in how we suffer the pain and in the amount of joy we allow.
