not funny


No loss by flood and lightning, no destruction of cities and temples by the hostile forces of nature, has deprived man of so many noble lives and impulses as those which his intolerance has destroyed.

Helen Keller

I am at the tail end of my cold. At least I hope I am. Still blowing my nose--a lot. Now I have a pimple in my nose. Not fair. Not funny.

I will spare you all of the other betrayals of bodily function. I am getting better. You might not think so if you were to hear me, though.

On this auspicious date--01.11.11--may your life be full of oneness!

Helen's words sit heavy in my heart. May we all learn to rise above our tendency to be intolerant.

The pimple might not be funny, but you sure are. :-)

Love you.

My friend's dad died yesterday, 1/11/11, I took that as a very good sign.
