This morning from about 8 to about 9:30, the electricity went off. How discombobulating. There I was in the middle of a blog post and ... poof! There I was trying to cook oatmeal using a flashlight. There I was, forced to take the toothbrush to the window in order to see how much toothpaste I applied. There I was, unable to turn on the dishwasher or see very well into the refrigerator. There I was with my entire schedule upended or revised. By the time I finished zazen, somehow, unnoticed, the lights had come back on.
Interesting when assumptions are challenged.
