The seed of suffering in you may be strong, but don’t wait until you have no more suffering before allowing yourself to be happy. ~Thich Nhat Hanh
I haven’t been online lately for reasons outside of my control.
Primarily life has a way of getting in the way.
I would like to thank the kind people who recently gave me awards.
My intention is to post them soon. Please know that my heart is filled with gratitude.
My husband had minor (questionable) surgery that had to be done before the end of the year when we lose our health insurance….ahem…
My camera broke because I dropped it on my unforgiving tile floor thus missed capturing my insanely huge turkey herd that had herded itself into the corral! Two dozen male turkeys is quite a sight!
The flu has gone ’round and ’round and still, I am dealing with a painful, raw, rasping throat with my third flu virus.
Fingers crossed there isn’t a bout of pneumonia in my future, the usual outcome.
The incessant commercialism of Christmas et al is something I ignore.
I send wishes on the wind for a peaceful new year and that it may be so for all beings~
The difference between theism and non-theism is not whether one does or does not believe in God. . . Theism is a deep-seated conviction that there’s some hand to hold: if we just do the right things, someone will appreciate us and take care of us. . . Non-theism is relaxing with the ambiguity and uncertainty of the present moment without reaching for anything to protect ourselves. ~Pema Chödrön
