Tonight there's a bash at Ginny's. It's Phil's last night teaching, so
people are bringing party food & I made up a certificate of appreciation.
The sangha is giving him $500 as a stipend toward the retreat of his

I hate passive-aggressive actions (or non-actions). Grrr. So I've got some
reactivity coming up to deal with. It's been quite a week & a half. Lots
of sad or upsetting things. But I'm trying not to get caught in the drama.

Phone ringing, bye, Love, Mom
