Today was a full day. I was not able to post on the day itself, but I did meditate on my drive back to VA from NC, while my daughter napped. I did metta meditation, or loving-kindess meditation. I wished “May I be happy, May I be healthy, May I be free,” and then expanded that metta to my daughter, and then others on the road.
Happy Christmas to all. It was my daughter’s first Christmas with my parents, and it was wonderful to have my brother and his wife visiting from Seattle.

The day before something special is also special, so I wanted to wish all of you Merry Christmas for those of you that celebrate Christmas. For those of you who do not celebrate Christmas, I hope you still enjoy the day off as a holiday. I want to thank fellow bloggers on word press, who have been reading and supporting my writing this past year, and I also want to thank new readers who have been liking and commenting these past few months. I am grateful that I chose to keep writing and sharing, and that all of you have taken the time to share with me. May God bless you and keep you safe this holiday season. Peace be with you.
This post is a departure from my regular content, but I just wanted to thank all the people reading my posts, following and commenting. I am so grateful to be part of this blogging community, and to find renewed motivation to keep writing and create visual art.
I am blessed to visit my parents in NC. My mother made me 오뎅국 (Odeng-guk: fishcake soup) for breakfast this morning. My comfort food of choice is homemade home cooked Korean food, and also good Southern cookin’.
I won’t be posting on Christmas Day, but I wanted to wish happy advent season and Christmas for those in the Christian tradition and happy holidays to all.
My daughter is away with her momma visiting their family in FL, but I am blessed to be surrounded by my family and friends as we get through first year of major holidays coparenting.
Thanks again to all the readers and writers who share their thoughts, art, and experiences. May you be held in the Light of a loving Higher Power. To my Buddhist friends, much metta and peace. May you be healthy, happy, and free from suffering.
