In the second of my weekly Buddhist teachings I offer a simple message from Dekyong:
Maureen ‘brought the house down’ yesterday singing along to the Sound of Music. Our builder even switched off Radio One and stopped plastering once he heard the Sound of Maureen. It was lovely to hear her accompanying Julie Andrews as her focus shifted from her thoughts about a dead baby.
She is in good form this morning after relaxing in a warm bath. I have no idea how home carers are expected to get a service user bathed in a half an hour call: Maureen is still in her dressing gown and unfed an hour after I began coaxing her in the direction of the bathroom.
