A Lady's Prerogative For Hallow's Eve: What Superstition Wields (Finished First Draft: Artwork to come)

This is my yearly Halloween story, though last year I kind of wove the Halloween and Santa Claus story into one if you remember and came up with a funny bit involving Barris and Sato early on in their friendship as they have guests for the seasonal holiday. This year I'm bringing Halloween and A Lady's Prerogative home to my country of Canada and my home province of Ontario. This story takes place in Ontario, though far north up into territory occupied by far fewer than in the Great Lakes region of Canada (and the United States). I hope that you enjoy it. As a side note, I recently did a rant post (the Rant-zilla post if you recall as it was the last one) really attacking the problem of harassment, as it has been plaguing me for years in both the online world (very covertly) and the offline world very overtly. Everything I stated in that post I meant with all of my heart and being, and I will not apologize for any of it. This has already gone way too far, and a post of that nat

A Great Meditation Session...

On Monday night I was fortunate enough to attend an online meditation training session hosted by the Shaolin Quanfa Temple Institute of Toronto in Chan-Dao Meditation, along with a full class of students.

The session was hosted by Master Dao Shi, Chief Instructor at the SQTI and focused on the stress management aspects of Chan Dao Meditation, with guided instruction on technique over three sessions as well as a lecture on stress management. 

The entire class lasted for a little over two hours and yielded great results for the class in attendance and for myself as well.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank SQTI, Shi Fu Dao Shi and everyone who attended. I'm very grateful that I had that opportunity and am very much looking forward to the next class.
