Hello, I'm here too

Postby Placid-pool » Sun Jan 04, 2009 11:25 am

Blessings be upon this site.

Some of you might know me from ES and other places.

I am yer token non-Buddhist who hangs around picking up knowledge and sometimes throwing in the odd comment, or making the tea and baking cakes.

Don't come to me with esoteric questions or philosophy but if you need a large sympathetic shoulder or a world of experience in the harder side of life ... I'm yer witch. Looking forward to this site - friendlier, softer, less abrasive?

“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.

:lol: :lol: :lol: OK not "tokenistic" but maybe "tolkeinesque" ....

Well, I'm here if you need me ... which is a point - someone better show me where the kitchen is because there seems to be a severe lack of tea and home-made cookies on this site.

Right .... everything in the kitchen seems to have been brought in second hand from somewhere else but I've got it all working now ............ so pile on in and help yourselves to a nice cup of tea and an oat cookie or slice of fruit cake (don't worry - virtual cake is calorie and allergen free!)

Now, I'm going to be in the corner in my rocking chair knitting if anyone wants to chat to me. Enjoy

Greetings Placid Pool,

Lovely to see you here. I hope we can fulfil your expectations for this site... we'll certainly do our best.

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson
