It must be in the air, because I was just led to another good article about healing the mother (or father) wound. Here it is.
That "cold" I thought I've been suffering with for nearly four weeks is sinusitis. I'm not sure yet whether it's acute or chronic, since it just came on recently...but four weeks seems to be the outer limit for acute cases. Apparently sinusitis is a common result of allergies. I never had allergies before I moved to Rose Cottage, but this place is so incredibly dusty that I'm not surprised that after living here for nearly seven years, I've now got chronic sinus problems.
The only thing bothering me is a sometimes-stuffy head and a sometimes-runny nose, both largely on the right side of my head. No sore throat, no cough, no lung/bronchial congestion, little sneezing, no fever, no aches, and no sinus pain or headache. I'm sure I don't have a sinus infection. There's no cure for this, only symptom abatement. This might be my new normal.

I don't know yet what next year will hold for me. I'll definitely continuing blogging, but may cut back on posts again. We'll see what develops.
I wish you all a very happy, warm, cozy, peaceful holiday season and new year.
May you dwell in the open heart.
May you be free from suffering.
May you be awake in this moment, just as it is.
May the awakened heart be extended to all beings.
