I Was Looking for Spiritual Peace, and I Found This Plastic Egg

Insofar as it actually took place, my Sunday eggs-cursion worked out. With the help of a friendly and talented hand, I sharpie-decorated and filled some brightly colored plastic eggs with candy and weird notes (i.e., "You are a wonderful friend. Even Oprah knows it.") I then left them around DC willy-nilly...though it would be accurate to say I only covered a 3-block perimeter. I'm not sure if anyone actually picked up and opened any of these eggs. But that is my earnest hope. And the entire egg-cercise was worthwhile in the creative regard. No, unfortunately, I didn't take any photos of the proceedings. It takes two hands to randomly hide eggs in plants and around statues while evading tourists' lollygagging and cops' eyes alike.

Also, I can't stop taking personality tests (INFJ) and reading self-help articles (Martha Beck-ommendations mostly). Someone tell me something I don't know already! I've got mindfulness downpat. Well, I mean now I know what it is. Now I have to figure out how to master it. I'll call you when I've beaten my highest Zen score, which is, in itself, a paradox.

I don't need any guff about Oprah.com neither because desperate times call for desperate, teary Google searches. Anyway, I probably blasphemed enough just by expressing an O-pinion about her highness. That's what Oprah calls them, O-pinions.

Meanwhile in the relationships arena, this is comforting non-news.
