Sally, it's now occurring to me that I don't think we've ever addressed each other directly, but I have found your posts and your insight most helpful, I thank you.
I hope this message finds you feeling well.
"The serene and peaceful mind is the true epitome of human achievement." -- Ajahn Chah, Living Dhamma
"To reach beyond fear and danger we must sharpen and widen our vision. We have to pierce through the deceptions that lull us into a comfortable complacency, to take a straight look down into the depths of our existence, without turning away uneasily or running after distractions." -- Bhikkhu Bodhi
