[Epiphany 3B] joy sadhana

My father pointed out last night that I'd be at the [Baltimore] airport for the AFC championship game between the Patriots and the [Baltimore] Ravens. Due to my flight timing, this didn't impact me at all except when I got off the plane a little before 5, there was a crowd around the Boston Beer Works just outside the gate.


"Joy Sadhana is a daily practice in the observation of joy."

The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light. And they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. (Isaiah 9:2, Handel's Messiah)

Good things about today:Things I did well today:
  • I sent my reply email to [redacted v.2]. I'm glad to have been able to live in the open space of that email for a couple days, feeling almost no pressure to respond immediately (partly because I have the excuse of the memorial service), but at the hotel this morning I felt like I was ready to send it, and I was glad to get to that point.
  • After I got home, I:
    • took out the recycling (a second barrel never materialized last week, and I do not want to try to fit the next 2 weeks' worth of recycling in our already full bin)
    • did a load of laundry
    • plugged my desktop computer back in and transferred a hunk of my mp3s to Dropbox -- though Dropbox seems to transfer stuff in random order, which is problematic because my intention was to transfer folders to my netbook (leaving some in Dropbox temporarily so I can copy them onto my work computer as well) as I only have a free account, and I think it's gonna hit the limit while I'm asleep tonight -- oh, wait, the free account is 2.25GB not 2.0GB, so I'll be okay (she realizes, after having deleted the pre-existing stuff out of her Dropbox *shrug*)
    • made myself dinner (pasta & vegetables) and washed dishes afterward
Things I am looking forward to (doing [better]) tomorrow:
["anything that you're looking forward to, that means you're facing tomorrow with joy, not trepidation," as Ari says]
  • dinner with Missy
