Today, my sister was at home conducting teleconference meetings in her office. I was able to monopolize 5 minutes of her time. Then I made it a point to call Dad so I could talk to him. We had a good conversation. However, Mom managed to squeeze 5 minutes out of Dad to talk to me. I'm a mama's boy.
I found out that my parole hearing is scheduled for Noevember 10, 2004, at 12:15. That was a load off my mind. I was only delayed for a month. That's better than most of the life prisoners whose hearing may be delayed for 6 months to a year.
I'm waiting for a psychologist to do an evaluation on my state of mind and my potential level of violence if released from prison.
I received a long awaited letter from a friend who had an opportunity to meet the Dalai Lama. I want to meet the Dalai Lama. I know we would have an interesting conversation.
A friend separated from his partner after being together for 7 years. One day they vowed to spend the rest of their lives together, the next day they went their separate ways. Love and happiness come in seconds and minutes. we should never take the ones we love for granted. That's why whether in happiness of sadness, we should always embrace and let go.
Why would somone want to let go of happiness? Because once you let go of happiness you can embrace more happiness. And when you embrace sadness and let go of it, you don't have to dwell on it. Every time sadness shows up, you can count on happiness coming right around the corner.
