Earlier today I wrote a post about receiving a summons from my ex, suing me for divorce in the state of California. I was expecting Zoe at the door, arriving from the airport, and instead, I got a summons. It was my first time ever being served and it was quite a surreal experience. (It turned out that Zoe is actually coming tonight on the red eye and will arrive tomorrow morning. Thank God, because it was a difficult day.)
I wrote about the description my ex gave of me to the process server, which was actually quite flattering (especially given the description I would have given of him.) But after I wrote the post, a friend of mine was appalled and said to me, “What would Pema say?” So I thought about it and removed that blog post, but I thought I would put in a You Tube video of Pema talking about her own divorce and how she became a Buddhist nun.
