Thanks bhante.

A nice day has been had here... a lovely way to break up the working week, and get some chores done around the house, hopefully freeing some time up for the warm weekend we're supposed to be having.

I hope you've had a good day yourself.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Hello Bhante, all,

I went to a couple of functions today - but here is a slideshow of how Aussie's celebrate the National day: Beaches, Barbeques, Marches, backyard Cricket Matches, Citizenship Ceremonies....

Thanks Bhante

I was busily working!
Here's my office:
“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

Good article. I think the protesters have a valid point here.
