Been Thinking...

I know that I got my insane personality from my mom and I think I might just be thankful for that, because I know that my life will never be boring. Mom, I read this today and thought of you: Rather than focusing your attention on painful childhood memories to attempt to discover the source of your problems, concentrate on those happy childhood memories...that butterfly will come.

More Zen: Never abandon a desire because you're tired. Ask it to go away with conviction.

I just got an email with this photo of the founding ICOP (International Coalition of Parents of Children who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing) members under the tree on the wet grass on that beautiful day in Cernobbio...

Jo, you say "insane personality"!? You are reach of and full with joy. You love others, you live your life with an extraordinary intensity. I am sure you are able to make happy those who share their lives with you. And you realize this. Is this not written in your ZEN bible? If not, read another ZEN bible, there are probably many more…
You simply has so many facets that it is difficult to follow all of them. For you too, probably. But this is a positive aspect, of great value, once again, for those who are going to live with you.
About the ICOP, it is a very good news, go ahead, go Jo, go.
