Day 528

1. Reading a beautifully eloquent description of a reason to/benefit of meditation: “Many of the most important thoughts are unintentional—they can be neither solicited nor cajoled but have a rhythm of their own, creeping up, arriving, and leaving when we least expect them. It is important to cultivate the lassitude of mind that clears a place for the arrival of what cannot be anticipated. Idleness allows time for the mind to wander to places never before imagined and to return transformed.”  ~Mark C. Taylor, via Tricycle Magazine

2. A friend commenting that I am one of the most grounded people he knows.  I can think of few sentiments that are more complimentary than this one.

3. Watching the puppy perform a cost/benefit analysis on the merits of eating poop versus not eating poop and getting a cookie instead.  It’s incredible to see his little mind at work (and awesome when he chooses the cookie over the poo!).  🙂

The analytical puppy (Charley) is the one on the right [in green].  His brother (Jojo) is the one wearing the blue diaper.  They both crack me up.
