A while ago I went with my mom to one of her counselling appointments. There's a really nice park literally in the back of the building, with a man-made lake and ducks and trees everywhere. so lovely!! I spent my time under a tree watching passersby, meditating with the sun, and reading from a life-changing book called "A New Earth" by Eckhart Tolle. Afterward we went to whole foods, then to a different park to eat together. My mom spoke on the phone with my brother, and while she did so I made friends with this man at the park named Bill; he told me tales of his life as it was.
