Tossed Salad Friday

~~ Pitchers and catchers reported to Mets’ camp yesterday. Baseball has started… and my team is undefeated!

~~ This is what it looks like when it dawns on me I no longer need the random jottings on scrap paper of almost 30 years of phone conversations that never resulted in transactions:
~~ I put my hands together as half-applause, half-prayer for Oliver Sacks. Did you read his gut-wrenching Op-Ed on how he wants to deal with his terminal cancer?

~~ Sacks writes, “I want and hope in the time that remains to deepen my friendships, to say farewell to those I love, to write more, to travel if I have the strength, to achieve new levels of understanding and insight.” Since not many of us have the luxury/knowledge of when we’ll shuffle off this mortal coil, shouldn’t we all live with such purpose every day?

~~ I got an awesome compliment the other day. A lithe and graceful yogini came up to me after a class and said, “Nice practice.” I literally skipped to my car.

~~ The woman said she supported Prime Minister Netanyahu “unconditionally” because he’s Israeli, but she “loathes” President Obama because “he’s against Israel, which makes him un-American.” When I looked at her with naked shock, she had the grace to flush a little. “Well, I mean, you know, Jews just have to stick up for Israel.” I could have asked her why Americans don’t have to stick up for America, but I really didn’t give a rip as to what her answer would be.

~~ Oh, yuck.
Have a wonderful weekend, if you like freaking Siberian air and Artic winds.
