Hi Charles,

Have just read the excellent long posting on HIV and the Brain on the The Body's main pages and see the link to your articles.

Interesting to hear about your night at the opera.

But what I was most glad to see were your feelings about how acquiring HIV must make us live with a rage and make our dreams into realities! This is so true.

A lot of people have so much nonsense and so many obstructions in their way that they can barely locate their deeply-held dreams. But it is worth clearing the woods, so to speak, to find that trail. Finally making those long-held dreams into a reality is the ONLY fulfilment, I think, and while doing it one feels that when the time comes to say goodbye to life one will KNOW that one has done everything one really wanted to.

Very surprised to hear that nursing homes in California appear to be accepting only the aged healthy! Getting old is, for most people, all about slowly falling apart! It would appear that the people running these homes want to help old people as little as possible - hence they select only those who can give the impression of being totally without "flaw". This is so morally wrong and clearly discriminatory. I would write a careful and strong letter and send it to your state's authorities, bringing their attention to this problem. And maybe feed it to the media as well. People are more interested in such topics these days because the entire population is aging. Science is prolonging EVERYONE'S lives.

Festive greetings to you!


Without a dream, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly. Keep hold of your dreams.
