An Incense Cleanse for a Battered Cellar

Darkness recedes as we begin the final cellar clearing. Oh what fun to run your fingers through the cool, loose granules! Rich and loamy, untouched for 115 years!

Bedford Stuyvesant Brooklyn Brownstone Cellar Saga

If, while rooting through the unconscious cellar of your soul,
In order to expand your conscious awareness,
And to relieve your self of the burdens of your childhood (for example),
And if you happen to come across a very, very big obstacle,

well,

Some things are better off buried, so just dig down another few feet.

At Home in Bed-Sty

MISSION for the DAY
1.  Walk casually around, as you usually do.
2.  Stop in front of an environment that is unusual for you.

     (This could be an alien shop or  peculiar tree ((to you)), or simply the contents of a coffee shop or an elevator.)
3.  You guessed! Fit In!   Become a part of the environment.  How do you think?  Walk? Sound? How is your posture? 
4.  Take mental photo, or better yet an actual one to include in a text to somebody.
