Small world!

Today, I headed back up to 1350 S. Eliseo for my shot, and there in the waiting room was a friend from PTA days of long ago. She and I were called in for our shots at the same time. It is all rather public. You sit in a chair and lift your shirt, and in it goes for awhile. Walking out together, I asked her why she was there, and she whispered that she was only telling me because she doesn't lie in that place. It seems she has had leukemia for seven years, and because she didn't lose her hair with the chemo, she felt she didn't have to tell anyone. I am very grateful that I have wanted to share this. I can't imagine going through it alone. I'm not quite sure why not to share, and I honor that her process is different from mine. She looked great. You would never know, and she was very proud that that "is how she has gotten away with keeping it a secret." Hmmmm! I love my short hair. I think I will love my bald head, and I am glad you all know. Thank you!

Today is flowing peacefully and serenely for me.

I offer an ancient Chinese proverb.

Grant yourself a moment of peace,
and you will understand
how foolishly you have scurried about.
Learn to be silent,
and you will notice that
you have talked too much.
Be kind,
and you will realize that
your judgment of others was too severe.
