Rigel is the featured star in the astronomy pic of the day. One of my bosses named her daughter that and she is now a pharmacist in another state. Imagine naming your child after a star, that is wonderful.
I went to my Alanon meeting. Not my favorite mtg of the week but it gets me say my piece (peace) but it is not where my heart and soul live.
On Friday I will likely head over to a nearby Buddhist temple and participate in a meditation as they welcome the public in and welcome us to lunch. I went to Friday Puja ceremonies for a period of time a couple years ago. Three years ago it was a first date of sorts with a woman I dated for awhile, New Years Day, that is, not Puja.
Before the meeting I watched the Will Smith movie, Seven Pounds, with Mom. It was lovely although I resented being kept in the dark most of the movie as to what it was about, if you've seen it you know what I mean.
I started crying out of the blue this am while driving to work. I was remembering how it was to be married to the father of my son. It was some flavor of pain that needed to come out.
Jan 1st I start my Nanowrimo re-writes, I'm glad about that.
What's good about today is that I have much to be thankful for. The range of things above just scratch the surface, I am blessed with a full life.
