Start Today

“The work will teach you how to do it.” - Estonian Proverb

I ended last week’s newsletter with Carpe Diem. This week I’ll open by saying Start Today. Your diet. Your meditation practice.

Spring is upon us—have you always wanted to plant a garden? Plant something. Anything. Do it. Don’t wait for permission. And definitely don’t wait until you ‘have time.’ This is one of the great lies we tell ourselves. We never have time. We have to make time. We have to take it.

Back in 2006 when I first started Phetasy 1.0 and took off on the road to sell my t-shirts and greeting cards, the banner of my beloved website said: AT LEAST DO SOMETHING.

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

I am a member of a neighborhood Buy Nothing group on Facebook. A woman reached out asking if anyone had an aloe plant they could spare. She posted a photo of herself and explained she was going through chemotherapy for breast cancer, and heard that aloe would help for radiation treatments. Not only did dozens of people offer her aloe, but even more offered to go on walks with her, cook her meals, and do any errands she needed. I delivered her reusable gel ice packs to help with the burns.

Yesterday on the subway, a man was begging for money. Another man gave him a $20, said he had been homeless at one point, and that it is possible to turn things around.

There is goodness out there. There is goodness in here.
Sending y'all lots of love and peace. I hope you're finding kindness and warmth wherever you are. 💖

Whatever the verdict is, I’m prayin’ for the whole Pham in the states! I hope y’all stay safe and away from crazed rioters❤️
