A quick message to my DW facebook friends

Postby Modus.Ponens » Mon Oct 14, 2013 10:41 pm

Hello

I'm closing my facebook account. I have no time to waste on that crap. It is a giant garbage can for our most precious thing: time. And, as I said previously there, facebook _ at least to me _ is like the farmville of frienship.

I will continue, of course, to hang around dhamma wheel. You can contact me here.

Metta! :)

No worries, MP!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Thank you cooran. :)

This is a wholesome community. The time spent here is mostly well spent so there's no need to eliminate my DW account.

I did the same thing recently, the amount of time I was wasting was becoming an issue for me. Much better, for me, to have let it go.
