Another 4am wake-up! The cats were delighted! I am equally delighted to have a weekend free of the Weekend Job, ostensibly for Missus birthday but mainly for quality Me Time! Missus has to work normally today and tomorrow Daughter gets her day with Missus, leaving me with two daytimes to do what I like with!

3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
With no football to enjoy, a movie fest beckons, as I can enjoy the many films currently unwatched on Tivo. Fri/Sat evenings will be at the disposal of Missus and Sunday, her actual birthday, will be essentially the same as normal but with birthday cake and pink bubbly thrown in.
There will also be some extended meditation and paying off some accumulated sleep debt. The general theme of the weekend is to thoroughly enjoy life as this character, but existing on two levels at once as I also turn off thought and enjoy being Higher Consciousness.

9. ZEN WISDOM
The course of our lives is determined by how we react—what we decide and what we do—at the darkest of times. The nature of that response determines a person’s true worth and greatness.
