Greetings,

Heheh... I got through that one undercover quite nicely. 8-)

It was actually yesterday and it was a really nice day.

:thanks:

Metta,
Retro. :)

happy birthday to you, Retro!
“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

Happy Birthday Retro!!! :smile:
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

Happy Birthday! One year closer to parinibbana?

For your birthday I purchased you an imaginary trip on a glorious 1930's retro-futuristic flying boat.

Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.
