Today is one of those magical, the rain seems to make time stand still days!
Wow! A sneeze just ended in a violent coughing fit! So ready for my lungs to clear and my voice to return! Reading a blog about upcoming Tibetan New Year festivities today was a little bittersweet for me both because I'll be working all weekend and won't be able to focus on many of the wonderful activities that feel like nesting to me, but mostly, it reminded me that due to the chronic respiratory problems I've had in the past 4 months, I've really had to stop burning incense and I love this idea of clouds of cedar and sage smoke cleansing the home!
5:35 PM: BOOM!
We have police, hunky firemen, curious neighbors, flares in the streets! It's a party!
FIREMAN: Okay, then. Be careful and make a run for it!
Luckily, they took O.F.D. seriously, even if they blew me off.
