I'm grateful for so many things today.
Walter, Marc, Eve, and Mischa who came over tonight to discuss Chapter 16 of the Dhammapada. You are such fine friends. I feel blessed with enormous good fortune to have you in my life. And also to Debra, Richard N., Louise, Christian, Sue, Richard R. and Roger who couldn't make it tonight. I missed each one of you.
A new president who inspires America to hope instead of inciting it to fear.
All my teachers, but especially Jim Wilson.
