My tooth—the left crown—popped out during my meal yesterday. I was lucky to book an appointment today for a temporary fix-it job at the dentist. I sat on the chair, which was elevated upward, with my head bent back, which exposed me to their TV screen in the ceiling. There I saw Anita Sharma—the anchor for Bloomberg News. “That’s my former Sunday school student,” I said to the surprise of the dental hygienist.
I felt a sense of pride. Anita does a mighty fine job with her broadcast voice.
Anyway, it was time to set my crown back into its location, however, when I got back to the ashram, on my first bite, before I had a chance to swallow, it popped out again like a weasel. A bridge job is now to follow. No problem! An appointment is in place.
In the meantime everyone is getting ready for the festival of Jagannath, the Universal Lord. It’s going to be a virtual display this year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. There’s excitement in the air. I did receive an email for booking a zoom class for the community in Ujjain, which was the headquarters for the late Bhakti Caru Swami. This is an honour. We are looking at a community that is naturally in a state of grieving.
No walking again for me today. The humidity is too much outside, so mopping the temple floor was my option in preparation for tomorrow. That was just awesome for me.
May the Source (Jagannath) be with you!
