What’s so hard about wearing a mask?
I wear one while exercising at the gym.
I wear one dining in a restaurant until my food is served.
I wear one in my drawing class.
Wherever I go, I am happy to do my part.
I don’t like wearing a mask but I accept wearing it for the greater good.
I wish everyone else felt the same.
I don’t cry very much.
In fact, I wish I could cry easily and more often.
Over the years I have learned to maintain control.
My emotions are contained.
I wear a happy face.
Masks and sunglasses have helped maintain my facade.
Unless I am in church. Then my guard is down and tears come easily.
“Amazing Grace” did it for me this past Sunday.
The healing grace of a good cry.
Does a body good.

Coffee latte with cardamom and flower petals
Yummy on a cool fall day.
More calories than caffeine.
I’m a sucker for anything with cardamom.
What’s your favorite coffee?
You don’t have to be a physicist to identify a black hole.
Nor do you have to be a scientist to deal with one.
All that is needed is determination and resolve.
I think. I hope.

Thursday is the day I was born, eons ago in a galaxy far, far away.
Not really eons ago and not really in a galaxy far, far away.

Healthy Breakfast by Lori Greer ~ Lori Greer in Portland
I wanted to share some simple things.
First, my wonderful breakfast with fresh tomatoes from my one plant. It produces a lot of tomatoes! In addition to brushcetta on rye toast, I added a kale salad. Of course, freshly brewed coffee was on the menu!
Yellow roses from my garden. These are from a tiny plant that I received as a gift many years ago. The rose bush is now a monster!
My new kitchen cabinets! These were a run of the mill wooden color until recently. I took a huge leap of faith and had them painted white. The transformation was amazing. My kitchen looks brighter and larger.
If you look past the roses, you can see my “ghost chair”. It is a great addition to my small living room. Not the most comfortable but it works for short sessiions.
Have a wonderful day,

My thanks to the kind person who wrote this note.
It’s lovely to sit outside first thing in the morning.
I feel as though I have the world to myself.
The flowers, the birds and the cool air soothe me.
I relax. I let go.
I do a ten meditation on inner work.
I sit for a few minutes more.
The jasmine are starting to bloom. Wonderful fragrance.
Now, it’s time to start my day.
Have a lovely day.
This is the rest of the story for those who read my “Pretty Cool” post.
The Google Assistant worked perfectly.
It made my restaurant reservation for the correct time, date and number of people. I could not have done it better myself.
The young person who showed me to my table was amused that I was nervous about a computer-generated transaction.
And no, Google did not pay. Darn it!
