3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Today's blogging was delayed 30 minutes by a particularly affectionate cat who sat on my lap. It occurred to me what an awesome priviledge it is that there are both animals and people who trust me absolutely and count on me for their happiness and wellbeing. It was affirmation that I had learned well a fundamentally important lesson that my own parents never did - that relationships are much more important than soil, bricks and mortar, and this needs to show itself in time and energy. The trusting love of living breathing beings towards you is the most wonderful thing about life.
My inner crusade to eliminate random thought continues. I have found the simple procedure of breathe-and-submit calms my mind sufficiently for intuition to predominate over thought. Well in place when I am quietly alone, I intend to expand this mindset into busy and social interaction periods.

9. THE WISDOM I'VE LEARNED FROM OTHERS
"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." - Leo Buscaglia
