"Smile at each other; smile at your wife, smile at your husband, smile at your children, smile at each other – it doesn’t matter who it is – and that will help you to grow up in greater love for each other." ~ Mother Teresa
So this week we've had snow, sun, clouds, wind, calm, cold, warm-- and Alaska made the national news because there's not enough snow in Anchorage to start the Iditarod sled dog race there this year. Today? The clouds fell from the sky and landed on the beach.
"The birds they sang
at the break of day
I heard them say
Don't dwell on what
has passed away
or what is yet to be...
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in."-- Leonard Cohen
Monday I had half of my teeth cleaned, not the top half or the bottom half, but the right side of my mouth from the molars to the gap between my front teeth. Which may be why I felt so lopsided until the second half was cleaned yesterday afternoon and my balance was restored. Then I had an interview from a journalist in New York who asked me if it was summer here now, since Alaska and Australia have the the same seasons, right? And I wondered if maybe my ears needed a cleaning, too.
