this was a good reminder for me. The blues, the doldrums, crappy days seem to sneak up on me. One thing I've learned in trying to meditate is that there is always a personal freedom to ignite or stoke my awareness. When I'm in tune, I'm aware of the choices I can make and those that I know I have to adjust to and that subtle perception can make a big impact towards appreciating how the day happens. Learning to observe is difficult yet pleasant.
