alone

woo!

Filed my taxes! *phew* I don't so much mind PAYING taxes, it's the stress and obfuscation around the filing of them that I dislike. I know that if it were as simple as "You made $x last year, send us 5% of that" all kinds of people would find ways to make it look like they didn't make $x or what have you, but I hate the form codes and the complicated details, when, really, I just want to pay the damn tax, and be done with it!

Refunds from both state and feds, but not so big that I'm grumpy about having lent them the money. I wonder if my time in Guatemala will make my taxes more complicated next year. Whee?

the center

"There's a center out of which you act. The center has to be known and held...
Unless this center has been found, you are torn apart, tension comes... Nirvana is a psychological state of mind. It's not a place like heaven. It's not a place that's not here. It IS here... It's the condition that comes when you are not compelled by desire or by fear or by social commitments." (Joseph Campbell)
