I feel like I need to post something today, but I am tired. It’s freaking before dawn, and I’m at a forest temple on a hill in the middle of nowhere. And this post was actually written on Friday night. In spite of the cramps, the sore back, the bug bites and lack of sleep I’m sure to be having—I am part of a supportive, diverse and engaged Buddhist community. Not only are they wonderful people, they sure as heck know how to cook. I am so very grateful. Now I’m going to go sit and try not to fall asleep, or at least not snore.
