|The way to the beach. Lots of wires in the air. |
They're much more noticeable in photos.
Water looks rather like a tsunami.
Talked to Carol Gerstein, the social worker, today. About travels. About a Living Funeral. About my Advance Health Care Directive (I'm going to do a new one.) Then walked at Ocean beach. It was beautiful and sunny, and there were very cute little birds. If I were naming them I would call them Running Fat Cutebirds.

I also looked up some places for cremations and natural burials, etc.
I don't know if my face hair is just normal middle aged lady stuff. Maybe it would have happened in X years anyway? On the pos. side, my fingernails are amazingly healthy.
Oh yeah, found a cool version of the Heart Sutra that seems to be based on the one we use (Kapleau's translation). Will post it later.
Oh yeah, MJ transcribed my talk. I say "like" a lot: confirmed. Do I hammer on about this talk? Sadly it's pretty much the only teaching I've done in the last year which makes me sad. Anyway I need to edit the transcription, but will post it when ready. So much shit to do, so little time...?
Everything looks really beautiful. Is it in my eyes? Is it the light? Am I dead?
