Good Morning!!

I am in some discomfort this morning, and I feel how the pain keeps me present. I am right here, in this moment. Perhaps, that is a good thing. It is a like a little hammer saying Now, Now, Now.

I keep swearing I will put no more politics on the blog, and then, I come to my computer and read this. "The government has abruptly ended an inquiry into the warrantless eavesdropping program because the National Security Agency refused to grant Justice Department lawyers the necessary security clearance to probe the matter."

Ack!! I don't even click to read more about it. It is enough, and the birds are singing, and the fog is flowing in and out, and Chopin is on the stereo. What a miracle that is! Chopin in playing in my house. Life is amazing!

I read the article in the New Yorker yesterday on Whole Foods, and what a billion dollar business it is. They are considering Michael Pollan's comments on what is sustainable. Organic food from another country, or even across the country, is using an incredible amount of fossil fuel to get here, and the point is to consider everything we ingest as sacred. I seem to do that well when it is a piece of good chocolate, and I am trying to transfer the thought and experience to all my food, and to most of my breaths.

I notice each night the moon is getting bigger. Wow! I am so impressed with the moon. I love following it in the sky. I am trying, and not trying, to live more aware, and the pain comes in and says here. The pain says that is why I am here. To remind you that you are here, and the moon and the sun entwine in lifting my eyes to the sky and the stars.
