    Recently, I was watching the Trisha Show and the days guests were people addicted to eating strange things. There were several ladies who on a daily basis ingested anything from dirt to pencil erasers. One lady had horses on her property and she would dig for dirt in areas that had the least amount of droppings.

    Yes, thats what I said, the least amount of droppings. She would fill up her container and then take a deep pleasurable whiff of the dirt before taking it inside for consumption. Another lady not only ate dirt, she included sheet rock and plaster in her diet with a side dish of baby powder.

    As the revelation unfolded the studio audience began to frown and utter sounds of disgust and disapproval. Like a flash it hit me that I was experiencing the same reaction and it started me wondering what it was about this story that we found so disgusting and why anyone would eat dirt at any time, let alone as a daily snack. Such eating habits were alien to the audience and I could see no method to the madness; consequently, we had no understanding of the whys of such aberrant behavior but that did not stop our judgment.

    It is interesting to say the least, how we can immediately reach a faulty conclusion on the skimpiest of evidence and from that sum up a persons worth.

    Maybe, there are psychological reasons that drive people habitually to eat substances that have no apparent nutritional value. Or, it could stem from folklore and hand me down home made remedies of the past, or it actually may be beneficial in some unknown way.

    Things We Just Dont Understand

    Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.

    As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

    Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love, for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is peren-nial as the grass.

    Take kindly to the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

    Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfold-ing as it should.

    Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.

    With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.

    Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

    One of the women had just recently lost two family members, one being her mother. I believe she said this is when I started eating dirt. Although, there may be other pressing events in her life that contributed to her current behavior we will never know. The same applies to the other guests who shared this way of coping with lifes challenges.

    Those of us who do not share such aberrant behavior have no understanding of those who do and only the ignorant and prejudice judge without understanding.

    Age is just a number, according to the old adage. Whether you are turning 20 or 60, it is your inner age and how young you feel that really counts. This is even more true when you create everyday healthy habits that help you feel younger.

    Living a healthy life starts from the inside, says Bonnie Taub-Dix, registered dietitian and national CocoaVia supplement spokesperson. We dont often think abou
