Back in Winnipeg, just settling into life here again. Much greener than before, the birds are singing even now at 9:30 PM. The only minor nuisance is the wood ticks, but of all the hundred or so I've picked off my robes and skin after a good romp through the bush, not a single one has actually bitten me, to my knowledge. They're pretty pathetic as far as parasites go, I must say - not that I'm complaining. And no, we have it on good authority that they don't carry Lyme disease (that's deer ticks, haven't seen any yet).
Sorry I didn't make any videos during the trip; somehow there just wasn't the inspiration. Tonight we did another Dhammapada video - verse 50, one of my favourites.
I'm thinking of moving the Monk Radio Q&A to Sunday at 1PM my time, which is... 1800h UTC. Hoping to add a Saturday 1PM (1800h) broadcast of our sutta study, but that may have to wait until I can get the right cable. We'll see tomorrow. Probably these changes will take place next week instead.
We're having a meeting on Sunday to discuss something important/top-secret that has been brewing in our organization for the past two months. Hopefully we will make a final decision and I can tell you all about it.
Until then, a wholly-unrelated set of seventeen syllables:
hot hands grope old-age
lover's lips seek out death's kiss
romancing the grave
