RX: Kindness

It’s hard to find beauty today, when I’m sick, again, still, and he’s away, and there’s the dog to take care of and the child to raise, the business to run, the laundry to do, the groceries to buy, the debt to pay. I close my eyes and try to meditate, but end up visualizing little black demons around my heart – never a good sign. Then at the pharmacy the pharmacist is so exceedingly kind that it snaps me into gratitude, and I drive, heart restored, to pick up my daughter from school.


This is day 27 in my year of writing about beauty.
