Going silent.

Postby Reductor » Wed Jan 26, 2011 6:21 am

I don't talk much in RL, but I talk somewhat more than I should out here on the internet. Particularly here on DW.

In considering that fact, I've decided to go silent for between 90 to 100 days. Its not a long time, to be sure. But it'll be longer than any such hiatus I've taken thus far.

I'm putting it out there among you in the hope that by being public about my intent I'll follow through with it. So if you see me posting before April 25th be sure to chastise me and send me packing. :tongue: Also, don't anyone start a really interesting meditation thread until I've come back. Please! :lol:

Take care of your selves.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

@plwk: I saw that story in some book once. I believe it was Buddhism for dummies (yes, I have it. It's hopelessly biased towards the Mahayana. :embarassed:)
