This has been some week. As challenging as it has been for me — I have to say it has made me realize how truly blessed I am to have so many friends who care about me. I feel lucky. …just in an off-beat kind of way. I have always been a bit off-center so this only makes sense.

I could not wait to get to the acupuncturist today! I am really starting to find a great deal of benefit from it — tho, some of it still seems kind of strange to me. I don’t care — it seems to be helping!

This afternoon the acupuncturist examined my tounge and touched my writs and feet — then told me, “You’re kidneys are completely drained of all energy” …now, I’ve learned that when he says “kidney” he doesn’t mean the body organ — but it is some sort of touch point identified within Chinese medicine. Anyway, I explained my week and melt down to him. He sighed and told me that I needed to not be so hard on myself. Then he put needles in some new places. One was placed in the center of my chest and one each in the soft parts of the bottoms of my feet. The insertion of the needles killed — but, oddly, after they were inserted — they felt good and I had the most relaxing hour!

Acupuncture rules!

I’ve a big interview tomorrow afternoon. We are talking “full on suit!” meeting! As is my way, I hope for the best, but expect the worst. However, I do have a good feeling about this one. It involves public speaking and some management of a sales team. Sounds fun to me. However, it is outside of San Francisco — not nuts about that. But, I don’t want to jump off into the future — will have to see how it goes.

…and do my best to keep my “kidneys” full of life energy!!!

    you know, I’ve always been curious about acupuncture, but I’ve never known anyone who’s had any experience with it. How do you find someone who knows what they’re doing with all those needles?
