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!
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.

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
