This morning so fresh and clear, even after surprise Super Bowl party in our room last night. Drank the rest of my dark winter beer. Darkest of the dark days are over. Don Season complete. Today: Neutral Day, and tomorrow: Shambhala Day. Year of the Fire Monkey is on!
Let’s play! Let’s get into all of the spaces and paint.
A series of things to get into.
Now: Breakfast and stroke practice in Mr. Gayner’s office.
