Pictures from my trip to the emergency room tonight.
I hope everyone is fine.

I have been ordered to take it easy.Day 6 in the month of love I'm thinking about something
both Louise Hay and my former boss when I taught a college
positive psychology course agreed on. Before you can love
anyone else -- and most people are hoping to find an ideal
person to love, you have to love yourself. So on day 6, I want
to thank Louise Hay and my former boss for teaching me to work
on caring for myself.
And I do, but I'm more interested today in knowing how you show
yourself love. In recent years I have been absolutely blessed to
spend most of my time with kind, loving people. Years ago working
in a corporate office I watched as my manager was kind to every
single person she encountered in her day. That corporation was big
on status and definitely encouraged the idea of rank. But she ignored
it completely and taught me an invaluable lesson indirectly. Every
person we encounter is equally important. So that includes you.
Be kind to you, and it will be easy to be kind to others. That's what we
need today -- love as the driving force and constant in our lives.
In the interest of being good to myself, and at the urging of
my friends, I spent 4 1/2 hours in an emergency ward tonight to see
whether or not I have a concussion. It turns out I do, and I am
ordered to do nothing, unless I want to. Here are some drawings
from the hospital (a different one) and me in the middle with my
cat, where I will be for most of tomorrow.
Have a being-good-to-yourself day.
