Slowly but surely it is turning green outside... already found a couple of mosquitoes and I seem to be attracting wood ticks as well. Still, nothing beats the forest.

The trip to Toronto and Rochester is now more or less sure; I have an airplane ticket to Toronto on May 26th, returning June 10th. I'll try to spend May 31st to June 2nd in Stoney Creek, maybe we could hold a weekend course? Unfortunately, I don't have time for more, what with all the great things going on here in Manitoba.

We have two meditators here just finishing up foundation courses, another coming today, and a Tibetan Buddhist Lama planning to take the course from his nearby home. June already has a couple of prospective meditators lined up, and more looking to come over the summer.

We've found some disturbing news about the house in which we're living; the foundation isn't so well-founded. Anyone with experience as a foundationer would be welcome.

I've started broadcasting our evening sessions live, now that I don't have a cameraperson. Evening sessions start at 7 PM most days, and if I remember to broadcast them, you'll find the live stream on YouTube, as well as a recorded video some time after each broadcast. One thing that might help for this project is an old notebook/netbook/laptop, something small that we could put in the main hall and hook a webcam up to. Donations of used equipment welcome.

That's all. May is here, again.

see the world turn
returning ever again
a humble journey

    I look forward to the chance to meet with you, and also with those that may be traveling with you. The snow kept me from meeting you last time, so this time I'm going to be making special efforts: it's not everyday you get a second chance.

    With Metta:
