Stuff all around the house, partially packed. I'm not bring much because I'll be wearing the same thing for three weeks.
Finished the typhoid meds, ug. Packed antibiotics, malaria meds and xanax (natch) for the 36 hour plane ride with stop overs, gha..... did I ever say I'm claustrophobic? Well I am a smidge. So riding in a jumbo jet with 120 other people AND if I should be stuck in the center aisle, well you get the picture. They do let you watch a bunch of first run movies on a wee screen but that gets old after a while.
Will I be warm enough? Will I be too hot? Will I go crazy sitting and walking for 14 hours a day? Will the dharma teacher be sweet or severe or cranky? Will my fellow retreatants drive me crazy? Will I drive myself crazy?
All will be revealed.
For the benefit of all beings, I go forth.
And bless all the beings who are marching on January 21st in DC and all over the country. I am there in spirit. It's historic, women.
My daughter is going to DC with her bud Traci. Go represent, ladies.
