Hellos to all

A long time goes between posts sometimes

Sometimes in my posts I refer back to different periods of time in my life, in sitting....

It occurred to me that some may take this as a bragadoccio (sp?) kind of thing

Nothing could be farther from the truth: the passage of time does not involve any special skill

When it comes to sitting zazen, all that was required was that I started, and once started, I continued (sure fallow periods arose, but then I started again and continued).

For many people sitting zazen is a life-long practice. I don't know how long my life will be, but it is my practice.

I am lucky to have a sangha to sit with close to where I live, and lucky to have a forum to visit no matter where I am.
