Temporarily Out of Service

This week while social things go on and nothing of import happens in my personal world, is a sort of Gap Week. I've got a holiday sugar glaze going on and find I can't get worked up or even very interested in what's going on in the world. I sit at my desk, Hildebeest on the leaf, both of us watch the wind whip leaves around outside and that's the extent of my interests. It's kind of zenlike. With donuts.

I'm still reading the news and the world keeps making it. But I find my mind wandering halfway through an article and there's no "What? WHAT?" reaction anywhere. This week, I can't work up a good goddamn. Very unusual, but a welcome respite.

So unless and until something jolts me into a "What? WHAT?" mode I think I'll just relax and enjoy this. Peace doesn't come by that often and I have a hard time finding it when I want it most. For now, I'll embrace it. The tsuris will be back soon enough.

Donuts for you, catnip for Hildie....sometimes it's good to just watch the world slip by with detached eyes. Have a rest. I'm going out to the post office to get some paper to wrap that watercolour set in.

Wouldn't want my zen any other way.

Wayne! Good to hear from you, especially with good news. I love this: "In Islam, we believe that we have to do service and help everyone," Imam Mohamed Melhem of Central Mosque of Charleston said." Were that everybody, whatever they believe, believed that...
