Just a quick post here, offered out of curiosity as to whether or not I’m the only one having a completely whacked-out week. No big, heavy thoughts on “rigorous and skillful meditation,” no existential angst… just a check-in to see if there’s more to this than my limited gaze can take in….
Among other things that I’ve probably forgotten, I can report that the computer at my day job went down for three days, just when we’re supposed to be shifting to an entirely new system that, for one reason after another, has been slow in coming up to speed. My favorite tea house closed its doors forever, and now that I’ve finally found a seat at an Internet cafe (not always easy in Boulder, where no one seems to work, and are thus available to pack cafes morning ’til night)… where the electricity suddenly went out, so my laptop is on battery power and I’m using a weak WiFi signal from up the street. Apparently this side of the block has gone black.
I just had a friend tell me how yesterday’s Full Moon opposing Sun/Uranus has introduced a level of electrical chaos for everyone… who knows? He said his computer has been freaking out all week, with software crashing one moment, working fine the next. I’m hearing about computer crashes from a lot of my friends — oops! Am I the common denominator? Is it Michael’s fault?
Impermanence, right? Nothing stays the same forever, change is the only constant. Roll with it. Adapt. Observe, receive, release.
A snapshot of the Times, perhaps.
In any case, I get a sense of adventurous excitement from all this uncertainty, knowing that the Sun will come up tomorrow, bringing change that I need.
How about you?
