Here in Belgium, the weather is very fine, we made a big 2.5 hours walk in the sun, saw much little flowers trying to get out of the cold ground,  we worked for two hours in the garden too, but it's still very cold and ours hands did freeze. We made a seed-plot so we hope to be able to have our own vegetables early. Happy to have seen so much sun and colors and greens.

Namo Amida Bu. Yes, what you said Valerie! A lovely sunny morning here in Malvern. What's the weather doing wherever you are?

Ever grateful for modern medicine, glad to hear that David Brazier is recuperating at home.

Thank you for that news, Sujatin. I'm a bit behind due to our furnace going out and then a cold virus, but both minor in the scheme of things. Makes ever thankful for furnace repair experts; and that I don't have to go out in the cold and snow with my cold. Good wishes to all.

Namo Amida Bu - I did attempt to post yesterday but gremlins ate my post. I continue to be so grateful for the expert medical treatment that Dharmavidya is receiving in France and the news of his visitors and his probable discharge from hospital tomorrow :: link

Today we have sunshine in Perthshire - the view of the snow-covered mountains is so beautiful. Namo Amida Bu

Namo Amida Bu. We have Mondays off and so mine will always be a Tuesday Nembutsu! Lovely sun here today - our cat has been sitting on the blue bench I can see from my office window and I'm tempted to go out there with my cup of tea... colder than it looks though. Love to all & as we all are, continuing to send healing to Dharmavidya.

May the light of healing shine on Dharmavidya recovery to continue his teaching that we all appreciate so much.

Namo Amida Bu - giving thanks for the teaching, friendship and guidance of Dharmavidya and hoping he will fully recover from his illness

Comment by Ian McPherson on February 1, 2016 at 11:37

I am sure that Dharmavidya is in all our thoughts and prayers at this time.  With all good wishes for a speedy recovery and a long, happy life.

Here in the Yorkshire Dales we are experiencing yet another named storm ("Henry" this time....).  I can't remember when I saw the sun last.  Rather like the inner sun we have to trust it is there even when we can't see it!
