Things are settling down internally and in general. The continuous contact with fellow trainees and constant exposure to the dharma and the sangha are just what the doctor ordered. Being in a structured environment of this type is being in a constant learning mode because the whole point of the practice is to examine one’s self in detail. At this point I’m in a bit of a “limbo” because after next week I go and house sit for two weeks for some friends who are experiencing for the first time the prime imperative of all grandparent.
“MUST SEE AND CUDDLE NEW GRANDCHILD ASAP: COLLEGE LOOMS!”
After that I’ll be back at temple and probably have a different take on things just because of the proximity to old friends and the newness of the sensory overload will have worn off a bit. So many details left undone.
Thank you good friend who is renting my house for being patient with the things I left undone.
It’s also been fun seeing and working on repairing and replacing things I helped build or install twenty some years ago.
Life’s a journey
And we don’t go very far;
Not as far as we think.
Then again there is no
Limit to the space we
Occupy. Just us. Just This.
