Greetings and welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

I'm hoping to get to Thailand and go north with the family at some stage over the next year or two. I've heard it's really lovely up north (not grim at all!)

Welcome Venerable!

“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.”

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Hi
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
