Hello Dhamma Wheel...
Seems I am shy on these introduction posts.
So I'll just say it's very nice to be here. :smile:

Welcome to DW!

Greetings and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“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

Greetings, InfiniteSummer--
I am also in Champaign, Illinois. You might not know about the Prairie Sangha, a group which meets on Monday evenings for meditation. It's the only Theravada-related group around. I can tell you more about it, or you can see http://www.prairiesangha.org. Or perhaps I already know you there? At any rate, welcome to this forum, which I look at nearly every day.
Richard
