3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
With the exception of an ageing laptop overheating when streaming live TV, things at home continue to be bliss for my character. Missus not speaking to ghastly Daughter is an added bonus. It looks like Missus will be home tomorrow rather than her usual visit over there. An ideal scenario would be for Missus to be so sick of her treatment at the hands of Daughter, in comparison to the love at home, the rift between them becomes permanent, and Daughter's dark shadow is gone forever from my life.
This unfortunately is not likely but I am visualizing it and we'll see. Dark shadows, i.e. people who make life difficult are currently absent from my life, for which I'm profoundly grateful. But rather than just sit smugly, I continue to use the benign circumstances for self-development.

9. ZEN WISDOM
Peace is not simply the absence of war; it is a state in which people
come together in mutual trust and live with joy, energy, and hope. This
is the polar opposite of war—where people live plagued by hatred and the
fear of death.
