 Posting from my phone. Man, I have eaten so much baklava. That's what happens when I don't have a particular thing that I REALLY like for too many years. Also walked to Target yesterday and bought three more of those Hershey's peppermint candy bars. That makes six; wouldn't have done that if they sold those bars all year long.

Also at Target were Funko Pop figures of Chirrut Imwe and Captain Phasma. I'm running low on funds so it was easier to say no. I really don't want to risk getting bitten by the collectibles bug. But sigh... I also really wanted Chirrut and Phasma.

I haven't wanted a character to be real so badly in such a long time. If he would have me, I would so learn at the feet of Chirrut. He'd probably just say to focus on the Force (or don't focus, merely reflect, if it's more like Taoism). But still. What I wouldn't give to meditate in that guy's vicinity.

It's funny how spiritual pursuits require solitude and quiet, but spirituality itself tends to be magnified by social interaction. Hence people praying and meditating together, singing in worship together, even emptying their minds together. It's hard doing this by myself. You'd think I'd have some chill hermit vibes, wouldn't you.i don't. I turn inward when I am alone. I think of myself. The results are hypochondria, anxiety, depression, and staring at the past. I don't pray or meditate for hours even though I could. Heck, I don't even do it for minutes.

It's late and we're going to the movies in the morning to see Assassin's Creed, so I need to get to sleep. It's nice Dreamwidth is still here and that I can access it through phone and tablet.
