Enlightenment At The Dentist Office

"When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about." Rumi

I had to practice a little Zen today while visiting the dentist.  What I thought was just going to be a routine cleaning and X-rays, turned into a 5 hour ordeal.  

Luckily, the office is very modern with all the newest technology.  When my young looking dentist asked if I wanted to get my crown today, he wasn't kidding.  No molds, just a camera in the mouth.....then a machine makes it while you wait.  No temporary caps here.

Lots of X-rays, periodontal cleaning, plus a crown........I put my mind in a Zen state.  I was able to zone out and live through this ordeal.
