How on earth did that happen? December 30? This evening comprises a house full of young adults, Lincoln, the white Pizza from Mulberry Street, a cold, cold night time walk with the dogs, tears with the ex on text (always text, never in person), the usual. Apart from wishing for world peace, a world where Republicans actually use their brains, and the desire for a raised consciousness everywhere, here are a few things that may make life better:
1. Understanding. A profound need for listening to and taking in other people's points of view.
2. More Yoga. Kundalini at Golden Bridge with Tej is pretty much bliss. Also, it helps the raised consciousness (and, as my friend points out, may get you out of kerfuffles.)
3. A swing. Preferably on a tree in the garden that flies out over the canyon on sunny mornings.
4. A tardis. For visiting England on Sundays for lunch, humor and a dose of down to earth normalcy.
5. A karoake machine. If we sang our hearts out for an hour a day would we be sad? No we would not.
6. More walking. Period.
7. Saying yes instead of no more often. To everything.
8. Kindness. Everything needs it.
9. Forgiveness. That and 10. are really everything. In the world. Campbell, Jung, etc, et al agree.
10. More lurve. It heartens me, this. You see, when I see my old friends on Facebook, the ones who were cynical, witty, slightly mean, clever, scary people at college and I realize that they've softened, that they post pictures of puppies and kittens and their babies, I realize there's hope for all of us. It's no longer cool to be a hater. You know?
