Made texas style jalapeño apple pie for the sifus! The buttery flakey crust was a huge hit haha.

The visiting girls make me think of my past and Audrey…terrible to hear of their loss of their father. Light convos about baking pies in London and podcasts for English acting training. Curious convos about religious mothers and discipline vs. 被約束 of the 5 refuges.

懺悔/Repentance. This was extremely challenging to start to work on because of how my mother weaponized this and my general millennial/living in the south aversion to catholic’esque guilt domination tactics. But starting to see how this is also a matter of turning the xin with wisdom, not flagellation…

Now during a few weeks of very long days, I notice my propensity for falling asleep lessen.
