Thankfulness or the Small Stuff Ain’t important

Where am I? Somewhere above Arizona or New Mexico, I think. I’m flying east to Raleigh on board an American Airlines jet that should’ve taken off a few hours ago except there was this teensy wire that came undone and the pilot thought it might be a good idea to reattach it. I concur. And […]

I can see for miles! Seeing clearly is vital to me.

My week of thrice daily acupuncture sessions for a mild cataract is at its end. There I was, lying on the table with needles stuck in my body thinking, ”Here’s another fine mess I’ve got myself into! Thank the gods of oriental medicine I am almost done with this week!” I may sound like a […]
