Prayers for our neighbors

October 31, 2012

The Mushmina shop is open again. Philadelphia was for the most part spared the wrath of Sandy, but we are praying for our neighbors.

Just wanted to let all our fans and customers know the Mushmina shop will remain closed today but will re-open tomorrow. We hope everyone is safe and dry inside.

Sandy Be Kind

To all our neighbors and friends in Philadelphia, New Jersey and New York. Stay safe today. We pray this storm goes easy on our homes and businesses.

You have to make mistakes to find out who you aren’t. You take the action, and the insight follows. There’s always something ending and something beginning. Yet in the very center is the truth of your spiritual identity: is you.

Fabulous, hilarious, darling, screwed-up you.

-Annie Lamott
