I passed jagged kidney stone this morning. Possibly the by product of the worse pain attack I have ever experienced in my life that occurred this past Wednesday. With its passing came no pain. I had been wanting to embroider APONIA on a large piece of linen I had made into a curtain this past week for the east window in my meditation room. I embroidered it this morning after I had completed my other morning rituals. For the first time I used a natural linen thread to embroider with and was delighted with the delicate and lyrical quality of each stitch. The word looks beautiful and will now hang in my meditation room where I will enjoy it every morning.
