Like a Wild Potato

Hello! I found this forum while E-Sangha was down. I'm not using the same screen name here as there.

I am glad to have found this forum!

Welcome Potato!
I hope you like it here!
Great cheesy photo, Jack!
“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.

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Let's try to keep things on the forums where they're posted, k?

I'd also prefer to be called by the screen name I'm using here. Thanks.
