Evening -

We walked down to the marsh today and watched all the cars lined up to go to the beach.  It was the perfect day to not get into a car.  Our neighbors were out walking, too, and Happy New Year floated through the air as people passed.

I came home and pruned some more.  These days are so amazing and the trees are thinking it is spring.  I'm sure the cold will come and I hope the trees aren't too shocked.  For now, it was the perfect New Year's Day, and we made and shared a perfect dinner.

Tonight, I put the Christmas decorations away, but not too far away this year, as it seems before I know it, Christmas will again be here, and this year I will be more prepared I say, as I said last year.

What am I with tonight?

I continue to feel great and deep peace. 

When I was at the Buddhist monastery of Tengboche at 13,000 feet in the Everest region of Nepal, I stood outside and heard the laughter inside.  I believe in that laughter, that joy.   Many Tibetans have been misplaced, and many have been tortured, and yet, they find laughter.

I had the experience on my 44th birthday of rising early and entering the monastery at Tengboche and being allowed to participate in a special service.  I wandered in straight from my sleeping bag and was given a special seat and a drink.  The monks chanted and I felt the beginning and end of space and time as one.  Each moment, for me, is that.
