    Being a novice priest doesn't mean that my writing about the Dharma is more substantial than yours. Actually, it might well be the other way round.

    Broken hearted. Sekishi.
    Though it is is hard, please sit for the victims on the other side too.
    All victims of anger and violence.

    Just sat with you. Thank you for showing that around the world there can be a striving for peace, thank you for your friendship.

    Just sat this; I was called away from Friday morning until Saturday evening with work and had no computer with me

    Looks like a few more than I missed out as well, though... ;-)

    Oh well, never mind; as always, our sitting in Treeleaf is "beyond all space and time"...! ;-)
