Greetings Groucho,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

As much as I like the Simpsons, I don't really think your avatar is quite appropriate here... do you?

Metta,

Hi Groucho

Welcome to the 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.

Thanks to all for welcoming me warmly.

Yes, Retro, I agree that my avatar may be not appropriate here, and I've taken it away.
