You share tea and your first real conversation after looking at art together. Some one helps you by talking you through filing your taxes, and then cooking you dinner. You get to show a guest a book. You finally have the furniture that allows you to offer a bed to out of town visitors. The port you got for your birthday is very good. You learn about dharma protectors: deities that embody compassion in a wrathful form. Your dog is delighted by all the company. Outside is the soaking rain. Inside, a bubble of warmth.
You thank your lucky stars.
