I love the way my dog smells, especially her ears. But since june, until this past Monday morning, i haven’t been able to smell her. Not only that but i haven’t been able to breathe out of my nose and have been sneezing non-stop! I went to an acupuncturist last week known as Dr. Kim (see previous posts) and after the first session i really couldn’t tell a difference. But this time…it was a miracle. He did more than twice as much as he did last time and i left his office still stuffy and feeling weary. I am all for investing in my health in positive ways over popping loads of Claritin, but this was becoming expensive! Then, it happened. I got a full nights sleep. No tossing, turning, weezing, or sneezing. In the morning, i awoke to full passage of air through BOTH nostrils. Now here we are on Tuesday night, still going strong. I am so happy i can’t even begin to describe to you how much.
On a totally unrelated note…well, now that i think about it, it actually is related in that this too makes me very happy…you should all watch GLEE on FOX tomorrow night. Not only is it the episode that i believe i am appearing in, BUT it is an incredibly entertaining, heartwarming, hilarious show. Also, someone i work with recently turned me on to a new band. Bon Iver. I will attempt to describe how i felt when i put it into the c.d. player for the drive home from work. I was literally entranced. It was a spiritual experience, riding down the freeway, staring into the bright glow of the red lights in front of me. I did’nt even care that it was taking longer than usual to get home, i was actually thankful. Me. Riding in my little church on four wheels down the 405. Blissfully happy, (and yes there were tears) stuck in rush hour traffic, and totally unphased.
