HAPPY BIRTHDAY ! ! !

21, the legal age for drinking alcohol here in the U.S. What is the legal age over there? But I doubt it will be your 'first' drink if you still drink. :tongue:

Happy Birthday Craig!
To think you are only a day older than my daughter who turns 21 tomorrow!
Have a wonderful day!

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 Craig,

Have a good time and enjoy your travels!

Metta,
Retro. :)
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

Happy Birthday Craig!

Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things
