Jin Shin Jyutsu

Last night I had my first ever Jin Shin Jyutsu treatment. It was fun to have a new kind of experience, though I found it difficult to stay still for an hour. I think it might have helped me feel more clear-headed afterwards. I felt I was seeing the world more accurately. Jin Shin Jyutsu […]

phone resolved

Erik fixed it. Something had come loose where the phone line plugs into the computer that I didn’t see. I’m happy.

phone saga

I went to the drugstore across the street and bought a new phone. I got it all set up and realized it still wouldn’t get a dial tone, so it must be a problem with the line. But my DSL works just fine. I googled “no dial tone DSL works” and read some forum posts […]

two dreams, some campers, the phone

This morning we went for a walk and saw there are some urban campers in the parking lot across the street from our apartment complex. They’ve pitched a tent behind a dumpster, trying to hide from the road. We’ve seen them here before, with a shopping cart full of recyclables. Last night I dreamed I […]

day trippers

Today we went to Berkeley. We ate Indian-Pak food for lunch that was delicious. I bought a new supply of recycled birthday cards. I bought some special pens in green, purple, and brown. (They write waterproof but don’t smell all nasty like a Sharpie.) We bought Acme bread at Elephant Pharmacy. We went to the […]

The important event was Pentecost. The color of the day was red. My friend’s dancing was beautiful, and she blessed me too, at communion, when I went up with my arms crossed on my chest. It was a good mass.

This morning I got some delicious cherries at the farmers market by our bank. I got some nectarines too, but they’re not quite ripe enough to eat. We also got broccoli, green onions, and […]

because of bees

Yesterday I saw my friend P in the afternoon. We talked for an hour then did stuff for an hour: I helped her print a portion of her yahoo address book, I looked at a beautiful logo, she played me some music. Then the little neighbor boy came over. He had a rock named Jack. […]

more about my religion #41

One of the reasons that I respect Vedanta is that it’s non-recruiting. Visitors are welcome, but there is no missionary work. This is important to me because I need to practice a religion that views all religions as valid paths to god. The way missionaries go into other cultures, tell people that their native beliefs […]

update about #3

Issue 3 is slow going. I find myself with much less to say now that this is no longer new. But I have faith that issue 3 will happen one day. So far the most compelling thing I have is transcription of my voices–I wrote down some of the things they were saying. Erik found […]
