    September 13th is Positive Thinking Day. Positive Thinking Day
    ==================

    My positivity for the day is very concrete. Too concrete for my liking. Was sprinting up a flight of stairs still moist from the night's dew, lost my footing. Luckily, just stumbled and a small scrape on the ankle above the sock, but no other harm. Even luckier: no one around to witness how the sprinter fell.

    Never thrusted my spiritual or religious beliefs on my own children. we are used to celebrating all festivals DD doing her HW comesup with something and realizes that she had no clue on Hinduism. Comes to me and says What is Hinduism? Give me brief outline on the principles. Voila this opens up a beautiful conversation between us and finally I said there is "Hinduism for dummies" do u want me to order that. Sarcastically she says "Thanks mom for calling me a dummy ". The essence of this conversation is I am glad that instead of forcing my beliefs on her though she is my own, I let her come to me asking for it.

    Perfect day. Not too hot, not too cold. Blue skies with fluffy clouds and a soft breeze. Motivated me to step out from work and take a mid-afternoon walk.

    I was giving live commentary about hurricane Irma until I lost power here in Florida online in IL. After that for two days, there was no power nor internet. First of all, these kind of catastrophic events humble us very much. I was wondering whether this kind of sustained wind power could be converted into positive energy for future use. Second, this gave a wonderful opportunity for all of us to spend time together for two days with no cable and no internet. We worked together in the yard to remove the debris, ate together and talked a lot. Neighbors were all very friendly helping each other. Humanity is always at its best when there is a catastrophic event.

    Talked with my child on the phone after ten days. Aqua pura to parched earth.
