Season's Greeting

Well it's overcast, humid and windy xmas day on the island...Season's Greeting and may you all have a mindful festive season...
My seasonal gift to the self was a longer than usual powerwalk to two lookout points (the self considers it to be both a reward & punishment ;);) )

    Well it will be Christmas Day in about an hour here, so I’m delivering my Christmas greetings from not quite the right vantage but I doubt anyone minds terribly. Merry Xmas folks!

  • I can hear something ... it may be the neighbours or Rudolph urging on team Santa ... I will be staying up to ensure the reindeer don't OD on mince pies ...

    ... busy ...

    Look after yourself everyone ... meditate Zen style early morning or evening with @how and remember our dharma chat this Sunday

    Hey Lobster
    Perhaps calling the twice a day Zoom meditations, a Zen sit, is a bit limiting.

    It might be more accurate to say that the twice a day 30 minute shared zoom sits are simply being bell timed by a guy sitting in Zen. The type of sitting that one does during this time is left up to the individual but since the mikes are being left on, as a courtesy, silence is requested during this sitting time.

    Cheers all through the Buddhmas holidays!

  • Thanks @how

    Very sadly missed this morning :(
    I tend to leave the mike off as I may chant ... and not always silently =)

  • Is it over?
    Phew ... I survived ;)

    Xmas done. 🥳

    Time to plan new year resolutions and precept breaking Tantra style: 🤔

    I don’t know @lobster, Boxing Day is officially still part of Christmas isn’t it? We still have a bottle of port with Stilton unopened.
