It may surpise you, perhaps, but I am not strictly opposed to the spectacle of violence and crime. It all depends on the lessons you draw from it. -Dalai Lama
as i was looking for a thought to share today, i found the above in my Dalai Lama book, The Path to Tranquiity. ok this thought from him surprises me but am thankfully of his truth here. i too am not strictly opposed to violence and crime. i accept it as part of life here. i consider it part of the journey here as humans. if we do not do it now, maybe we have done it before in another life. i feel we have lived here before and will do so again. we may not know why some do violence or crime, but i have nothing but compassion for those who do. and the way i see it, sometimes it takes violence to stop violence otherwise we wouldn't have wars. whatever our journey here, know it is all an expression of God being experienced by individualized Gods...
anyway, that's enough of my words of wisdom for the day. i'm at home today with a nasty cold. it hit a couple days ago and only got worse. i feel a tidbit better this morn, but still need to go get that chicken soup which i'll do today. i pray this doesn't last the usual 2 weeks with me. i also need to remember to pick up vitamin C and more orange juice, maybe some more J.D. whiskey which always helps me breath a little better through the congestion. anyhow, today is a day of rest again. i "may" be moving a bed over to Marsha's and i have yet to decide on class tonight. will see how my day unfolds. i like the idea of just lounging around for now. there's plenty on my plate for this weekend including driving to N. San Ysidro to get Jesse's armoire. want to feel much better before doing that. it's colder up north although we've been having beautiful weather here lately. i think our "normal" spring weather has finally arrived being in the 80s with that cool wind. would love to do another bike ride today, but not today. for now i'll just sit and finish homework. only 3 weeks of class left after tonight-Yippee! it's been a great class, but i'm so ready for it to be OVER! well until we meet again....blessings my friends!

I hope your not getting the crud we all had here. Miserable. Plenty of liquids and rest.
