Grateful for my 2 kids, 2 granddaughters, 2 brothers and their wives and step-families, granddog, friends, and Brother David
At night, when it is dark and I am silent, I notice whether the bathroom has a faint sewer smell, presumably from the bathtub drain.
How’s that for inspiration?!
To all of us, and especially those whose medical situations keep them from going far – a daily quote from the past:
When you can’t go far, you go deep.

To Ann and all – my son recommended a wonderful[!!] workbook for letting go of anxiousness and all sorts of distress. His coach recommended it to him, and I’m delighted and amazed at how it is helping me:
Coming to Wholeness: How to Awaken and Live with Ease (The Wholeness Work Book 1)
It gives me a touch of anxiety – that I am not using this moment well!
Hooray for the wonderful Welcome! banner and thanks to the lounge participants and gratefulness staff who suggested and made the banner. Hugs to all!
I’d vacuum the stuff off the floor around the guinea pig cage. But it’s still early, and I need my half-caf and my visit to the gratefulness site.
I treasure my mind and heart – or is it more accurate to say I treasure my heart and mind?
Me too – I suffered thru college calculus without ever getting in touch with any of my classmates for help!
Dear Ann – what good ideas! My young granddaughter got an award in school recently [a little piece of paper she brought home]. Her award, in the “Do their best” category, was for: “She asked for help!” She’s lucky to go to a school that gives such awards.
Thank you, Diane, for your post. My daughter and her husband recently tried to visit a craft fair near us, where they had once bought me a lovely gift, but it was closed on account of wind! [Such a minor comment on your warm and grateful post..]
I love your answer, Sarah!
Good plan, Ed!
Kevin – I just got a ‘gel memory foam seat cushion with massage’ today and am delighted with it thus far! My 2 other sit-bone cushions have been more or less disappointing.
It could be a hi-pitched Om, couldn’t it? Not low pitched like the ones we did in Yogaville, but still a simple Om
Ah, yes – sitting – I’m getting quite a collection of different ‘sit-bone’ cushions from amazon, and I’m learning to do things while standing. This Friday, I’ll be sure to see if I can get a cushioned chair, not a hard chair, in my Memoirs class – or maybe I’ll start bringing a cushion. Warm wishes to you, Kevin!
Dear Diane – One of our yogi friends thought tinnitis was an ongoing ‘Om’ – I’m not sure if he experienced it though… Mine is generally forgettable, but I’m hearing it now that you mention it. Not bothersome, but probably quieter than yours. Fibromyalgia, though – pain is such a pain, and so often debilitating mentally and emotionally, too. Hugs!
Oh, good – maybe it’s a benefit that I still forget Prayer Day, even when I’m aware that it’s Tuesday. Warm wishes to you, Alicia
Good idea – thanks, Verena!
Prayer day yet again – thank you for reminding me, Alicia. Hugs to you.
There are always other days… I walked to the near-by Safeway and bought the groceries on my list this morn! I’m proud of myself for getting that done, and I’ll have bananas for my breakfast tomorrow.
Happily, I like line dance classes, which are 2x per week, so I give myself 5000 steps credit for those, even though all the stepping back and forth and side-to-side means that my pedometer actually shows much less than 5000 steps… And I give myself lots of points...

There’s a gym in my condo complex, but I never go to it..
My daughter has been very tidy all her life and is finally giving herself permission to: Leave Dishes in the Sink!! – I wish her well.
I wish you well, too! I think some Guru said it: “Don’t worry – Be happy”, but one doesn’t want to Should On oneself about that either!
