when there are no doughnuts…

Beloved Community,
I am so sad to say, I will not have doughnuts at this week’s Gathas class. Why?! Because I’m fasting and neither of the other humans in my house want them. WHAT?!?! How is that possible? I DON’T KNOW!!
I really might literally cry about it.
But we will still have Gathas Class. Maybe I’ll bring a life size photo of a doughnut. And I do celebrate y’all bringing a treat of your heart’s delight.
