OK, troops. Everyone who doesn't have to pay a thousand dollars to get their car's air conditioner fixed, take one step forward.

OK, this kinda hurt. Then I think about the women in sabrinamari's book. I can feel lucky that I can pay for this and still go to Free Spirit Gathering and Fires of Venus. This is at most a serious annoyance, not a disaster. The same cannot be said for everyone I know.

I give my thanks. My gratitude is reflected in this month's Kiva donation.
