As a peaceful warrior, I would choose when, where and how I would behave.
With that commitment, I began to live the life of a warrior.

Pleasure in Privacy
A little OM

A quiet mood can inspire you today to indulge yourself with creature comforts such as good food, the company of your loved ones, and pleasant entertainment. If your obligations require leaving your home behind, you may find yourself longing for its comforting serenity and endeavoring to fulfill your responsibilities with haste. This can be a wonderful time to take a personal day and to engage in those activities that help you realize your inner bliss. You can nurture feelings of relaxation and composure today by surrounding yourself with only those individuals who inspire you and empower you to be the best person you can be. As time passes, you will likely find you feel rejuvenated and ready to face the world.

The delight we feel while spending time in our homes and with our loved ones often is greater than that which we feel when out on the town, because it is only in private that we are comfortable enough to simply be ourselves. Our personal space offers a refuge in which we can put aside the masks we wear while playing our outer-world roles. We can freely engage in those pursuits that bring us pleasure, whether or not these activities are what society at large would deem to be acceptable. The pressure to conform, with which we are typically burdened, disappears. Consequently, attaining a relaxed state is easy because we do not feel pressed to regulate our feelings and thoughts to please others. You can freely express your quiet mood today while enjoying the serenity of your personal space.

That sums up my day.
I made salsa - not as hot as I usually do.
I watched the old black & white movie "3:10 to Yuma" starring Glen Ford. My son even watched most of it with me.
