May 18th

It’s May 18th, the weather is gorgeous, I don’t have to work, and therefore I am sitting inside Sudzees trying to finalize the last of a mountain of laundry I’ve spent the past 3 days chipping away at with the rickety washer and dryer located on the bottom floor of my apartment complex. It’s also Rolo’s birthday. He would have been 11. I can always remember it because it’s the same day as the 1980 Mt. St. Helens eruption. I still miss him. It certainly doesn’t help that Knut, my parent’s new dog, is the devil in a small white fluffy package.

The Buddha says that when your anger consumes you, you’ve already closed yourself off to truth. I’ve been upset the last week or so, just in an emotionally painful place, and I think that has led me to just let myself be angry rather than seeing the reality of my situation and of life in general. I think it’s time to take a step back and be a better person. I would encourage everyone else to take a moment and do the same thing.
