Hi all.

I might recognize some of you from around the 'net and maybe even IRL.

Hi from Calgary. I hope you're all healthy and happy.

"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget." –Arundhati Roy

Howdy. :smile:

I lived in Edmonton until 2009 until I came to Tokyo for grad school.

I used to hang around Gaden Samten Ling (GSL) in Edmonton.

May I continue to practice loving-kindness and compassion for sentient beings. May my friends and loved ones be free from suffering. May those who have hurt me also be free from suffering.

Hatred is like throwing cow dung at someone else. You get dirty first before throwing it to someone else.
