...we're here to help...



thanks to L for posting this, I needed cheering up...

Why do I need a bit of extra cheer you may ask... remember a while ago when this happened? (halfway down that post is the WTF from last month)

Well, today I get a call from Salem that the information that I brought in to the DHS office, which was copied and faxed that day, is actually missing one vital stamping (that should have been applied by a caseworker after I handed it over the counter) and hence is invalid. So I need to go again to the DHS office and do it all over again. I had nothing planned for this morning anyway ...(not, but there you have it) Thank heavens for knitting, which is my calm-down activity of choice (yarn, it is the new Prozac)

Back still wonky, nothing new to report, move along now...

Had a wonderful time on Tuesday with open studio, A is a delightful student and very enthusiastic. I simply must push myself encourage myself to find more teaching possiblities, as that is a pathway that lifts my spirits and feeds who I am. Step outside of my fears and difficulty and do it.

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don't go back to sleep.

You must ask for what you really want.
Don't go back to sleep.

People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.

The door is round and open.
Don't go back to sleep.
