The musings of Paj Dawb (Hmong for "White Flower") - I serve the mentally ill/disabled by day, teach piano by night, and spent 6 years worshiping side-by-side with the Latter-Day Saint (Mormon) Hmong community in Alaska. There's nothing average to see here...

Lilacs in a very small world
Mmmm... One of my clients' co-workers made us blueberry smoothies this morning. She just walked in, set them down, and walked out. You never know what to expect on a Thursday morning. Another perk of the morning are the lilacs on the bartop. They are beautiful, I'm really enjoying having them in view. They smell great. And they remind me of my mother, as does this restaurant. It's attached to a hotel my mother used to live in and work at in the 70's and early 80's. In fact, the restaurant was not here back then and instead there used to be rooms in this portion of the building... And one of then was my mom's. I could be at this very minute, sitting in my mom's old room. CRAZY.
