good rainy experiences

Last night I met a new friend A and her two-year-old E. We went to the kids’ section of a Barnes & Noble and looked at books for a long time. Then we walked through the mall, ate food, talked. I had a great night other than a panic moment on the escalator. I learned… Read More »

busy week

Today I went to Tai Chi for the second time. I was the only client: it was just me and the facilitator. I found it calming. He had a big basket full of junk food and afterwards insisted that I take something. At first I said no. Then I took Cracker Jacks. He wanted me… Read More »

Star of India, “Gender Equality: Where do we go from here?”

Yesterday we went to lunch at an Indian place we had never been to, Star of India in Fair Oaks. The food was north Indian and not so creamy. Probably the nicest thing I tried was the spinach dish–palak paneer? But I didn’t see any paneer in there. The rice pudding was really good too.… Read More »

I’m wearing some new gray pajama pants my mom got me for Christmas. They’re super comfortable. Gray is my favorite color to wear. Last night I dreamed I had hundreds… Read More »

Tai Chi, worry, a nightmare

Yesterday I went to a Tai Chi group at my mental health place. I thought it would be a big group of people with a live instructor, but it was only three of us including the facilitator, and it was with a video. Still, I liked it. It made me feel calm. Also, I can… Read More »

40

This morning I convinced Erik that we should do some work on the big closet. Work means going through boxes and throwing stuff away. He got me just two boxes, and it took me hours to sort. I found a hundred homemade Welsh language flashcards, E.T. the movie badges, bottles of perfume I’d had since… Read More »

sunny

Today we went to a talk by Professor Eleazar Fernandez on “Filipino struggle against colonization and globalization and efforts at social transformation.” It was fun. It was held at a nearby church, and I was nervous to go to a new place, but I’m really glad we went. The speaker was articulate and smart. A… Read More »
