Several days ago, I wrote a blog post whining about the fact that I really didn't have the disposable income to afford more incense for the zendo and the house. It's pricey stuff and I live on a limited income.
Yesterday, I received a package containing a box of a new kind of incense -- very fine, but new to my nose -- from a friend.
Today, I received a largish box from the incense company I have patronized in the past, Shoyeido. Three plump boxes of my favored incense were within ... and no saying who footed the bill. I called the company and wheedled like a street urchin until they coughed up the name... another recently-made friend.
How very, very nice ....
I am as touched by the thoughts as I am by the gifts themselves.
