I learned today that a friend of mine has a brain tumor, part of which was removed a few months ago, and the remainder has left her incapacitated. Incapacitated. An interesting adjective that means disabled, debilitated, indisposed, impaired, immobilized, paralyzed, out of action, out of commission, hors de combat, etc. In other words, my friend is no longer living the life that she was leading. Everything changed drastically and now she is in another, very different place, living another, very different kind of life. I try to keep an open mind about these things. I'm sorry for her and for her family. I feel sorry for the whole family of humankind. Things like this happen all the time and there isn't an easy answer to "why?" AMAG refers to (what I call God) as "a life force of infinite capacity." Does this mean that God is never incapacitated? If God is all there is (and I like to believe this), then are brain tumors an act of life force in operation?
