3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
As I suspected, with Missus at home for 3 days, I'm not going to get much else done as Missus herself gets all the attention. As I suspected, a good "seeing to" in the morning meant that she didn't require one in the afternoon, but I was still required to do her catering and keep her company. At the end of the day she felt well looked-after, which I am happy to accept as my prime-purpose - it fits my overall life-purpose of making a difference.
Today the little blue tablets are given a rest as Son his home all day, and indeed bonding time with him will take place in the early afternoon, with teatime neatly slotting between him and an early-evening client.
Thoroughly immersed in the concept of living for the moment, the moment is calm, happy and fulfilling, for which I'm most grateful.

One suicide victim who committed suicide by jumping from the Golden Gate
Bridge left behind a note saying: “I’m going to walk to the bridge.
If one person smiles at me on the way, I will not jump.”
9. ZEN WISDOM
A person who cannot genuinely empathize with others can never excel as a
leader. So much of what ails society today is the result of too many
people in leadership positions who do not or cannot identify with the
plight of their fellow men and women.
