On Thursday, when I walked back into the reception area after my oncology appointment and sat back down to wait to find out when and where I would have the sonogram, I thought the whole open area was filled with a wonderfully rich Tibetan style music. I heard gongs and drums. I was sitting stunned with the thought of another operation, and, now, in some pain, and sort of spacy, and I thought the cancer care place was offering soothing Tibetan music. How thoughtful, I thought. After awhile, I realized that it was the men working outside to replace the front entry. It was the sound of jackhammers and other noisy tools, muffled by the doors and expanded in the openness of the atrium.

It reminded me that we can interpret the sound of the freeway as the sound of an ocean or a rushing stream. I needed music, and music is what I heard. It is like that sometimes. May your day be the same.
