    And this?

  3. Love the dance floor on the head of the pin.

    Love the interview. Your wisdom always helps me find my center and lets me release my shoulders from around my ears.

    And I was surprised to find St Pete in your list. It’s where I am, but it always feels like just a stopping point, and I truly consider myself a NYer. But then, I guess I should pay attention to here and now in this sandy, lush green, and steamy city.

    Ok, totally off topic here. Karen, what’s your Zen view of this whole Large Hadron Collider/particle accelerator thing? It’s set to be switched on Sept 10. Just curious!

  10. You remind me of an old rock and roll song by Deep Purple…

    “What a Whole Lotta Love”

    Love to you from north Alabama

  12. It is a blessing to be on your list, on anybody’s list. Gotta make my own list too! Thanks also for the reminder that we have the power to bless others with our words.

    Blessings on you and your partner and your happy chlid.
