Nebraska is 25 degrees which is quite chilly. I like coming here and swimming in the pool, thinking about life, and talking with students about writing.
Mark has done some research on new age practices but I don’t think he’s taking the chakra thing very seriously. He is not serious about his study of vision quests. It’s a pity because he could learn so much about going deeper. Sometimes I think he’s not going to see a white light or understand how to have any breakthroughs, but he says he had a pet poodle when he was child with whom he may make contact in the near future.
He is concerned that since the poodle has been dead nearly fifty years that poodles may spend a limited time in the afterlife. And is there an after bar for poodles? after the after life?
All these concerns plague our new year but we carry on.
