3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I had supposed that I would be having the windows open for Summer, allowing air to circulate freely, but I reckoned without El-Nino. El-Nino is a roughly ten-yearly phenomenon centred in the Southern Pacific where due to a build-up of heat in that part of the ocean, the currents all start flowing the wrong way. This affects the jet-stream, driving it much further south of Europe than normal for Summer. The result? It's around ten degrees colder than average!
Consequently I've had the windows shut and the humidity has built up to the point where I can feel the damp! Defeated, I have restored the de-humidifier to its usual home, and hopefully within a week, house humidity will be back down to acceptable levels.
Of course, in the overall scheme of things, these errors have resulted only in temporary discomforts. On the Grand Scale, with some gifts and blessings from the wider universe, this character enjoys a life of bliss. Of this I'm always aware and profoundly grateful. If anything, the flaws in this character, and the journey of discovery to address them, have led to getting life priorities right and the happiness I enjoy today.

Tanks were initially called “landships.” However, in an attempt to disguise them as water storage tanks rather than as weapons, the British decided to code name them “tanks.”
9. ZEN WISDOM
People who are rooted in the here and now, who are not defeated by their limitations, who don’t compare themselves to others, who confidently advance along their chosen path—such people are happy, such people are truly great.
