Monday I wrote with my regular group for two hours.  Tuesday the friend I call 'Archangel' brought delicious home made New England Cod stew with crusty garlic bread and a bottle of Merlot.   Wednesday I visited my bank and the new manager refunded that bounced check fee (Hooray). Thursday I attended the 2nd in a series of 3 'Zen Practices' at New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care.  Afterwards,
Trader Joe had everything I needed-Soy milk, Arctic wild caught cod, Organic spinach, Vegetable broth, Rice and Corn organic linguini, Organic oranges and,
I didn't buy flowers.
Friday I visited Lola who dances for cheese bits.

"My Father's Secret War"
 Copy pasted from Windthread thanks to Grace Forest:
"Courage is the measure of our heartfelt participation with life,  with another,  with a community,  a work;  a future.  To be courageous is not necessarily to go anywhere or do anything except to make conscious those things we already feel deeply and then to live through the unending vulnerabilities of those consequences.  To be courageous is to seat our feelings deeply in the body and in the world;  to live up to and into the necessities of relationships that often already exist,   with things we find we already care deeply about;  with a person,  a future,  a possibility in society,  or with an unknown that begs us on and always has begged us on.  To be courageous is to stay close to the way we are made."
David Whyte -Consolations
