The very fact of doubting my own existence establishes it.
It is self evident and requires no further proof.
But all else is open to doubt.

I think therefore I am, and I am therefore I think.
That is the beginning and the end of the matter.
I learned a valuable concept from a cat - the idea of company, quiet, undemanding presence, simply existing in a room together, each knowing that the other is there.

A vet once told me that dogs experience time continously, without distinguishing between days.Their lives were one long, uninterrupted day that never end until it ended.
A child asked her father,"What happens when one dies?"

The father said that when you die, it's like going away on vacation, but you never come back.

"Where do you go then?" the child asked.

The father said,"You go to a place with nice people and you get to eat whatever you want and stay up as late as you want."
