Forever again

December 2nd, 2008

Never again believe what you read.
Never again fly on the most overbooked air travel day of the year.
Never again go via this airline through this airport.
Never again be in a hurry to get home when fog socks in your destination.
Never again leave your dog at home with a dogsitter who misunderstands/misreads/forgets when you are returning.
Never again get the smell of fear, anxiety, panic and dog poop out of the rugs.
Never again use sudsing detergent in your new front-loader.

Now, never again say never again. Instead, sit a few hours of Rohatsu at the temple this week and make your mind open, your heart forgiving and the world right side up.

Forever again.


  1. Whew! Sounds like a harrowing trip! Glad that is over (for now). 😉

  2. May I offer you a virtual hug? Wow.

  3. Ah Karen – you do indeed need a virtual hug.

    I’m having one of those days too. My beloved laptop met with a glass of wine last night. Not a pretty picture. I’m embarrassed to say the temporary loss of my computer has affected more than I’d like to admit.

    Here’s to better days ahead!

  6. Oh, that all sounds dreadful — especially the cleaning the rugs part. Ack! Reminds me of our last Christmas with Prince and the playroom floor covered in runny messes in every corner. Left the shop vac at the curb for trash and within an hour someone took it — ah, the beauty of city life. I wonder when they realized the gift we left them. lol

    I’m thankful for you even if I’m hardly around to show it these days. Happy Days!

  8. Peace, mama, peace. I am glad everyone is home safe, if somewhat traumatized.
