Hello friends,

Today is my one year anniversary at Treeleaf. In that time, I have sewn an O-kesa and two rakusu(s?), sat more Zazen than I could easily quantify, had expectations and pre-conceived notions shattered, intensified my practice, relaxed my practice, made many many friends and met many many wonderful teachers. I've experienced some sweeping vistas and also some mud pits. I've read viewpoints that I otherwise would not have read, met people that I would have otherwise not been able to meet, taken Jukai with an online Sangha, sat Rohatsu with a physical Sangha, and am grateful beyond words for each and every member of this Sangha.

From the very depths of my being, thank you all.

Metta and deep deep Gassho,
