Poem and Gratitude List
Jalál (Glory), 16 Kalimát (Words) 175 B.E. - Saturday, July 28, 2018

City Living1

It is the city's
incessant pulsating chant,
the unremitting
rise and fall of decibels,
and the continuous throbbing of tones
that lacerates
the curtains of sleep,
penetrates
the minds deep canyons,
and aggravates
the soul's anxiety.

Even in the bright midnight,
when pools of darkness congeal
at intersections and parking lots
an endless hum stabs
at vibrating eardrums.

Gratitude List for 16 Kalimát

Today I am thankful...
         *BulletO* ...that I received two prescription through the mail.
         *BulletO* ...that I have 1251 points in My Survey account.
         *BulletO* ...that I my bank of America Checking account is not overdrawn today.
         *BulletO* ...for 16 oz bottles of water, because this hot weather is making me thirsty.
         *BulletO* ...for the Baha'i groups on Facebook because they are inspiring.

Facebook Status Update

This afternoon I made a health decision. I deleted CNN and the Huffington Post from my web favorites. I did this because every time I read a story, it raised my blood pressure.

I still have The Guardian and several local news channels on my web favorites. I will, probably, keep the Guardian. However, I will delete at least one of the local channels. I will do this when I decide which of the local news channels is my favorite.
