When it rains it pours
It's gray and gloomy and chilly today - a perfect day for a funeral? What is a perfect day for a funeral anyway? Maybe instead of thinking in terms of perfection I should say the weather is dancing in shamanic alignment with the event. Today's funeral is not as sad an event as recent deaths occurring within my circle of neighbors, clients and friends. The woman who died, the mother of a friend, was very old, very sick and has been on the verge of passing away for several years. This is as it should be. Still, it will no doubt be a somber affair. Given the gloomy weather I'm glad I'll be wearing something colorful. The suit can wait for another day.
After a day of intense work yesterday, and given the onslaught of craziness all around recently, I decided to kick back, watch some stupid TV. The new episode of NCIS was available for streaming, so I tuned in, expecting to see a murder mystery solved by the wacky characters on the show. But NO, the plot centered around a moment in which the life of the main character flashes before his eyes as a bullet speeds towards him. He is between life and death through the whole episode.
For heaven's sake!
Have a calm, lovely Saturday, y'all. Please don't die, OK? L'chaim.
