Number 25

Share it Please
It's all pretty simple, sometimes. For example, if it's Monday you wear yellow. Or if a customer shows up at 8 p.m., your store is obviously open. Yellow on Monday because that's the day the King was born and yellow is his color. Store is open for business whenever business is present. It's pretty simple that way.

Like the time we went for a massage at 8:00 p.m. Somewhere downtown Bangkok and the staff said "yes yes yes we can" and they russled up the therapists, number 25 was mine.

Number 25 wore yellow. Probably in her sixties and tiny enough to blow away, and yet she weilded a massage like Attilla the Hun conquering places in my back and shoulders that had been hopeless for years.

Number 25 was cheerful, precise, silly and delightful. She called her colleagues into the room to examine the tattoo on my butt between oo's aah's and high pitched fast paced language and laighter (I don't think it was ordinary Thai).

She also stayed in the room while I showered and changed. She was so present for her work that it was easy to like her.

She said at the end of two blissfully painful hours 'you new person now'.

Nameless number twenty five. I asked her how old she was - big toothy grin - "45, just like you!"

We laughed. We're both not 45 and haven't been for a while.

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
