The Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary defines “pragmatism” as follows: “a reasonable and logical way of doing things or of thinking about problems that is based on dealing with specific situations instead of on ideas and theories.”

Like a comet tracing its path brightly and slowly across a summer sky but once in a lifetime, the passing of Madam Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher drives home an inescapable truth.

While we listened to a song on the radio, my younger sister, the “kid” still in her fifties, asked me this week if I ever imagined myself actually being sixty four when the Beatles released “When I’m Sixty Four” in 1967.
