A little red

...goes a long way. I found a 1955 copy of The Happy Holisters and the Trading Post Mystery on the street. Above, the illustration on the inner cover. Images of happy families that abound in media of the era and more recent ones had me fooled for a long time. I really thought families were supposed to be happy like that all the time. Ha!

In Sky Dancer there's a part where Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava, Pema Jungne) remarks that it was good that his disciple, Yeshe Tsoygel, had difficulties completing an errand. This is good, difficulty is purification, he said. Some remarks go straight to the marrow.
