The law of supply and demand

Last Sunday evening, I suddenly wondered about the law of supply and demand. Also see my blog of Tuesday. Supply will create demand. Demand will result in supply. Once demand and supply reach an equilibrium, a market price emerges. Does this phenomenon extend to the Space and Time dimensions? From an individual's (ie, micro) perspective, a supply of time (eg, a...

The fallacy of control (3)

A friend sent me a comment on my recent blog The fallacy of control (2). She said that it lacked a connection with acceptance (my blogs). I agree. Hence, I've made some minor amendments to my 2017 diagram on Change to reflect how (not) being in control and acceptance are related.

This blog elaborates on my thinking.In a healthy relationship, there isn't much fighting. A new...

50+ dating is like fishing in troubled waters

50+ dating is like fishing in troubled waters

Recently, I had a phone call with a friend. During that call, I made a sudden and unexpected analogy: 50+ dating is like fishing in troubled waters. So, I guess I'm trouble as well because I’m still in that pool of leftovers. Several times, I assumed I was out but each time I find myself back in again. My mother (86) certainly agrees I’m trouble as she calls me...
