Breakfast in Burlingame

I was thrilled to look out my motel window this morning to see a Walgren's!  Woo Hoo! Deodorant and a brush and wonderful new pair of socks!!!!  I then spotted a Cafe Roma where I sat outside, sipping my latte, eating my fruit and thinking about Hafiz.  What?
  
I was reading my Presence magazine and came across one of his poems.  I have slightly paraphrased the first 2 stanzas within the parentheses:

"Not many teachers in this world
Can give you as much enlightenment
In one year (day)
As sitting alone, for three (one) days,
In your closet (Travelodge)
Would 
Do."

I have so many good teachers in those who speak to me online. One told me to direct myself, another told me that my arrival in Ireland would  be "perfect timing" and another told me that my spiritual conference had already begun - in SF.....and so it has...

Hi Roberta- seems as if you have now gone through the worst but you should have a glass of Guinness as soon as you touch down in my native land to celebrate and bless your safe arrival. ( or maybe even two!)
Hope you have a good safe flight.
