Personal Update.

I will be away from my computer for (probably) the next three weeks.  Dianne's "baby brother" (age 66) is dying and the family is gathering.  I'm trying to help Dianne hold it together without any idea of how to do that.

Allama Prabhu - If it rains fire

If it rains fire
     you have to be as the water;

if it is a deluge of water
     you have to be as the wind;

if it is the Great Flood,
     you have to be as the sky;

and if it is the Very Last Flood of all the worlds,
     you have to give up self

and become the Lord.
