hair -

I just realized that my hair began falling softly out a year ago, and then, tomorrow, December 7th, it all came out in clumps.  I went from a cute haircut that all admired to no hair at all.  It was bizarre.  I feel happy today, healed and I know I may still go back and forth, but this morning I feel happy and healed as can be.  I saw Elaine yesterday, who had the brain surgery a year ago, and she, too, looks radiant, happy, healed.  It is amazing what each year brings.

May this new year be soft with light, just tempered enough to tap us all awake.  Now and now and now!

Thich Nhat Hanh uses the telephone as a mindfulness bell.  It rings.  He breathes three full breaths before answering.

This may be a busy time of year.  Create your own mindfulness bell.   Tap a ring within.  Pause.  Breathe three conscious breaths, and on your way you go,  a cheerio with wings.
