Slow and Steady

Quiet time in the forest. Our supporters have commissioned the insulating of a big shed by the garage that is to be my residence once it is complete (few more days). This is to allow women to come to stay and practice here, as I can't stay in the same residence with the opposite gender.

Snow is melting; I've tried trouncing through the bush in snowshoes, but it's been too deep for much success. Maybe I'll try again today as the snow has melted a lot in the past few days.

Still no high-speed Internet; using someone's data sim card in the meantime. Should have high-speed around the end of next week. In the meantime, video uploads are piling up, including two new dhammapada talks.

Last night we had our first overnight visitors, two men from Winnipeg. Tomorrow we will resume our weekly day of mindfulness at 640 McGee.

That's all really; I'm going to try to answer more questions at http://ask.sirimangalo.org/, so don't think it's a dead forum yet :)

Oh, and just a note - someone ordered something from Amazon for me and it was sent to the wrong address; luckily I knew who it was and they are looking into it. Someone else ordered two other things around the same time that also haven't arrived, but I don't know who it is. If it was you, please let me know so we can make sure they don't go to the wrong address.

Otherwise, all's well.
