Time still flies … some times

It’s been a while since the last post just before a trip to Washington that included a retreat at Cloud Mountain. The retreat was a delight, at least for me. It was good to see old friends, enjoy the commodious setting, explore Dhamma, and have many long sits. As part of the morning talks, I explored some key virtues of the heart that were helpful during the cancer & chemo process, as well as on-going practice. I hope to publish these in the weeks ahead at

The first is online as Mindfulness & Gratitude (37 mins; 8.6 mb).

coziness in the front room

Other happy news is that we’ve been moving into the cottage. Though work continues inside, we’ve set up the front room as a cozy space with couch, bed, and altar. It has good light, stays warm, and is suitable for meditation, reading, and rest.

Work on the bathroom and kitchen carries on between teaching trips to Eau Claire, Rochester, and Milwaukee.

    Hi Santikaro, So happy to hear that you are back to teaching, and now living in your cottage! Must be lovely looking over the mountains from your study. My thoughts and heart are always with you (two) and LP. Look forward to the next time I can visit.

    I love the interior of the cabin! So warm and cozy. The book shelf almost looks built in! Did you make it yourself?

    Will make shelves & desk in there … eventually. Current shelves are from IKEA, fetched from storage a couple weeks ago.
