Hello old friend it's been a while. I've been off doing stuff and trying to be a better me, reconciling what I can't re-do and trying to move into the future. I thought after such a long hiatus that I'd just start with a simple list of stuff I'm excited about for various reasons.
I've fallen in love with VegWeb it's amazing. Such a great easy resource for families, singles etc...
I spend a lot of time reading the Dharma talks at the Deer Park Monastery in preparation for the retreat at the end of the year. It's a great way for someone to feel part of a community and learn from amazing teachers while in your yoga pants at home.
Also for practice at home is the BuddhaNet Library. Great way to have a free gong for meditation while you save up for a good one.
I also love making medicine for us and friends and Dr. Christopher is a local source that also has a handy web site.
There are other things I'm really getting excited about but this was meant to be a simple list of starter stuff. The best part of future looking is the Sangha. It looks like we are headed toward community. :) I can not express my joy at this possibility.
