Meditations for Queer Femmes — Have Enjoy

As an ESL teacher and lover of language, I am always on the lookout for those sublime moments when feeling and passion cut through the mundane rules of English and offer up profound teaching. Today, four meditation-worthy sayings that transcend English and cut right to the heart of joy.

Have enjoy. (said a sweet server at a Thai restaurant as she put our food on the table)

Fine good. (written all over the paper wrapping from a flower shop in Japan)

Better do. (from Japan, but I don’t remember the exact origin — maybe a t-shirt?)

and of course: Always go forward to tomorrow with hedgehog. (from a duffle bag, bought in Japan)

Every Monday (or Tuesday!), I offer a Meditation for Queer Femmes, in the spirit of my maternal grandmother, Mimi, who was fabulous, and from whom I inherited her Meditations for Women.
