First, my apologies for the way my previous post turned out. I usually break my posts into (hopefully) readable paragraphs, but there was some kind of annoying formatting problem that caused my last post to come up as one big chunk of text. It probably had something to do with the fact that I had cut and pasted the Laozi quote from somewhere else. Which somehow threw the formatting out of whack.
I was (and am still) very bummed out, because I spent an entire hour writing that post (arrghh...).
So, this is a test post of sorts, to make sure that whatever is responsible for the formatting of my blog posts is still functioning properly.
Uh... what else should I say? Well, the day after tomorrow is Thanksgiving. Whether you plan on spending it with family, with friends, or with yourself, and whether you plan on having a "real" turkey (as in the animal), a tofurky, or no turkey at all, I hope you will have a most joyful and restful holiday. May your day (and your practice, if you are practicing) be merry and bright (do I sound like Irving Berlin already?).
