I’m having serious internet connectivity issues. I’ve had to go without surfing for several hours! The problem appears to be structural (cable problems, not computer), and will continue for some time. Sometimes the connection is only gone for a few minutes, but I’m dreading the possibility of it being gone much longer.
One upside to all of this is that I’m reading books more often. Currently, I’m reading The Places That Scare You by Pema Chodron. I’m not familiar with Buddhist priciples, so it’s quite eye-opening. One thing in particular grabbed me:
maitri: the complete acceptance of ourselves as we are
That concept alone was worth the price of the book.
