Put the Fire Out!

Tiffany has been having episodic headaches lately, mostly at night. They showed up Wednesday, in the night, an uninvited guest without a welcome, they’ve stayed for five days now, to be exact. In a wild attempt to understand what was happening, like many, Tiffany resorted to Dr. Google, and found out they are genetic, and nothing can cure them. They can only be managed with lifestyle changes, and maybe medication from the doctor. In her research, a Quiz popped up, so she took it. The title was, “If you were to have a job, an occupation to manage migraines, what would you be?” In the final assessment they said she would be a Firefighter. She thought that was perfect, and also hopes the flames have finally been put out, and the embers die as soon as possible.

The Supreme Good

The supreme good is like water,
which nourishes all things without trying to.
It is content with the low places that people disdain.
Thus it is like the Tao.

In dwelling, live close to the ground.
In thinking, keep to the simple.
In conflict, be fair and generous.
In governing, don’t try to control.
In work, do what you enjoy.
In family life, be completely present.

When you are content to be simply yourself
and don’t compare or compete,
everybody will respect you and you will respect yourself.

Tao Te Ching


…to live with uncertainty.

…to reflect on the meaning of the past.

… to adapt to differences encountered.

…to understand what that knot in your stomach is saying to you.

…to embrace change and new realities.

…to make loved one’s a priority.

…to ask them for help.

…to cherish Time Un-rushed.

…to see yourself in a boat at sea with others.

…to ride the highs and lows of the waves together.

…to judge the changes in the tide with your companions.

…to continue with new ways of living.

…that we are confronted by a human crisis.

…to understand that crisis may be easier for you than for others.

…what it is we want to change, and to build?

A couple is 2.
A few is 3 or 4.
Five is 5, because it’s a round number. It’s five. If you mean 3, 4, 6, 7, etc. you don’t mean five. If you mean 5 you’d say five.
Several is 6, 7, 8, or 9. Because ten is 10. It’s two 5’s. A ten. Ten-spot.
Some is 3 to 175.
