I have recently decided to take refuge. as someone who comes from a Catholic family/friend group (extended and immediate) I have been tentative about answering the pull of buddhism, but I feel in my heart that this is the place for me. I am unsure of my steps in the right (or wrong!) direction, but I am discovering more every day.

The first of the four noble truths saved my life. I hope to find friends here and be a friend to all, as well.

now here is a jedi, because I love star wars :jedi:
