Walkin'

It’s been an interesting week.
Gretel, our short-term, short-tailed, feline roomer, stayed on a few more days after I last wrote.
She was no trouble at all the first few days as she dwelled inside the kennel Sabra set up for her with great care using feng shui, the ancient Chinese system using the laws of both Heaven and Earth to help improve life by channeling positive qi.

Food For Thought

I’ve decided that the frantic feeling of being rushed, running out of time, too much to do that we face during the holidays every year is a phenomenon related to nothing more than the calendar. This sense of urgency, and the vague suspicion that we have somehow failed to get it all done, spring from a false assumption that time runs out on December thirty-first, and if we haven’t done as much or as well as we thought we would or should, we’ve run out of time and opportunity. And then there’s a feeling of unease about the coming year.
