With the conclusion of the Rohatsu Retreat and the end of Ango, I would like to thank my Ango Practice Partner, and maybe give others a thread to do the same.

My Ango Practice Partner was Shugen (a/k/a Ron), and he was an invaulable help to me during the past ninety days. We sent private messages to each other every day and met on Google Plus every week to discuss the Practice Partner exercises. Of course, that was the point of having a partner for the exercises. But, he also gave me great advice on my Precepts study and was also there for me with sewing advice. It was wonderful to get the perspective of somebody who has been a member of the Sangha for much longer than I have during this period of practice.

And so, I thank Shugen
