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.

Happy birthday, John!

Why thanks! I did have a very happy birthday. My son threw me a magnificent party that lasted three days. It's good to have friends. Thanks to you all.

Metta,

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

I decided to treat myself to a new aquarium (upgraded my old one) actually treating my aquatic frogs. Made it a Walstad-style organic tank. It turned out nicely. Thanks for the happy wishes!
