An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. ~Gandhi

Today I am grateful...
  • that yesterday's slight feeling of sadness lifted after a friend called and we shared laughter
  • to have woken during the thunderstorm this morning, seeing the time on the alarm clock and knowing I had hours left to sleep
  • that it is crispy cool outside, damp, sort of perfect
  • for the odd experience of having Novocaine in the front part of my mouth yesterday as my dentist filled a small cavity. It is the second time she has mentioned that I might want to have my teeth straightened. One tooth has a slight set-back, but not enough to go to all that trouble I think. Anyway, the cavity filling ordeal was the least stressful one ever. Absolutely painless. Also I am grateful that fillings are no longer visible like those old gray ones.
  • that today I will "Make it work!"

Since you are a seeker, there should be no fear, for you are taking shelter inside the infinite Affection of the Absolute Supreme. ~Sri Chinmoy

Painless dentist is the way to go!

I'm always in awe about the power of laughter.

Do you still have fillings from where Dad did them? Mine are all gone, well the teeth are gone! I take after him with the bad teeth. He told me that once.

There are not many things as gratifying as waking up to find that you can go back to sleep.
