Dangerous Compassions

strong feelings

Today I worked my little shift at the Vedanta bookstore in the afternoon. I did some work in Excel. It had to do with book inventory. I didn’t have any customers, which is fine–I straightened up the store while listening to a special CD I made weeks ago with some Christian and then Hindu songs on it (Sufjan Stevens, The Innocence Mission, Wah!, and various). I called Erik and chatted with him.

Tonight he finally wrote a letter back to his ex-best friend B who wrote to him after years of being out of touch, so that’s happy.

I was too exhausted to go to vespers this evening and went to bed instead. I’ve been sleeping an incredible lot, with fitful dreams about strong feelings.

Good at listening to the noise until it makes sense.
