Hello everybody,

I just wanted to drop by and say hello. It feels like it's been forever since I've checked in with treeleaf. I don't know what happened. I've been busy at work, preparing to assume a new position, and busy at home helping my mother move, ect. For whatever reason, I did not check in here for a few weeks.

Funny thing, is I've found it harder to maintain my practice without Treeleaf being part of my routine . . . so hopefully I've learned my lesson.

enough from me, for now.

take care,

Glad you are back and impressed that you see the connection to your practice. I have found the same thing to be true for me in terms of Treeleaf as providing a cyber sangha that prompts my practice. I have a wonderful sangha here at the Drepung Loseling Monastery at Emory but there's nothing like an early morning log in to re-mind me of my commitment. As I have been on the road, and will be for the next few months, this is a wonderful community for me. I am grateful.

Hi Greg,

Nice to hear from you again. :) BTW how's your dog been doing? I hope all is OK.

Pappa doc,

great point about the role of a sangha in encouraging us to practice. I guess Sangha is one of the three jewels for a reason, lol.


Thanks. . my dog is doing much better, he's back to acting like a terrier!!

None of you guys has ever heard of "The Kids in the Hall," have you?

Terriers (The Terrier Song) Lyrics
Kids In The Hall

Terriers are my very favourite breed
They're cute and cuddly, easy dogs to feed
They will bring you up whenever you are down
Terriers average 20 pounds

When I walk around this terrier town
The only thing that makes me down
Is when people put bandanas on their dog

Terriers are my very favourite breed
Cute, cuddly easy dogs to feed
Terriers were there in the 11th century
Napoleon had one to prevent misery

Terriers are good with the aged
Studies show they prolong old peoples lives
No one wants to die
Like this guy died
Die die die
Die die die
Worms eating your eyes

You know those mornings that you can't get out of bed
And you'd call in sick if you had a job?

You know those mornings when you just wanna watch TV, eat corn chips and masturbate?

Sure you do

Well when those days happen
What you should do is start thinking about my friends
My little furry waterproof pals
You know who I'm talking about.....

Les terriers sont mes types favourites
Jolies, charment, pas de problem a maintenir
Ils donnest du joie
Quand tu es 'blue'
Les terriers sont a pier pres vingt livres

Give terriers a chance
Do the terrier dance

No, let's not

But if you want your love to show and you want your love to grow
Then go terri, go terri, go terrieeeerrrrrrrrrrsss!!!!!
