Mind is the forerunner of all good states...If one speaks or acts with pure mind, affection follows one, even as one's shadow that never leaves.

--Dhammapada, verse 1

Due to a water-main break, all the subway lines from my 'hood to Manhattan were down. So: ferry! What merry fun is the ferry, especially when you have packs of confused commuters wandering onto it, discovering it for the first time, all wobbly-legged and delighted.

The first thing I did when I got to work this morning was cut the pom-pom off the hat I found in the car. Pom-poms are humiliating.

Our friend Dickie is going to Germany for 10 days, so we are looking after his big, drooling, fun-loving mutt, LaToya. LaToya and Coney are working things out between them...there has been much barking and growling in the past 12 hours. Nobody got any sleep last night, and so far there is no clear-cut top dog in this relationship.

LaToya has an endearing way of cocking her head inquisitively...and she is an elegant frisbeeist.
