May 16, 2020-
As I have thrown some very lengthy “shares” on my other social medium, I will keep this brief and just mention a few things that come to mind, as the night progresses.
I haven’t seen the Moon, in its waning phase, this month. Turns out, it rises at 2 a.m. and sets when it’s mid-afternoon. I do, however, go outside and meditate under the stars, before calling it a night.
My computer desk is something of an altar. Penny appears in three photos. My singing bowl is right in front of me. A family heirloom Buddha, which my father-in-law brought back from Paris, in 1945, sits atop the mantle, next to a hand-carved wooden soldier, modeled after the ones in Nutcracker Suite. A photo of ‘Abdu’l-Baha and one of our son bookend the mantle.
I planted my four vegetables, this afternoon, adding granulated organic food scraps to the soil and spraying animal repellent around the area. Javelina tend to come in the yard, during the night, so I want to get them accustomed to not liking the scent of the yard.
Now, it’s time to change course and say goodnight to the laptop. Books have their turn, in my wind-down.
