Welcome to 2008
I know I've been a somewhat "Absentee Owner" for the last two years or so, but trust me when I say that these last two (and a half!) years have been the most trying of my life. I've gone from "having it all" (at least to me) to "losing everything" (well, not really, but sometimes it feels like it)
So hopefully 2007 completes the triumvirate of bad years and 2008-2010 will bring some cheer to me, and this will trickle down to you, my friends and loyal website contributors. I'd dearly love to "come back" to New Buddhist and start getting to know my old friends again as well as make some new ones. There are many new faces here, most of whom probably don't even know who I am, and that is entirely my fault and is inexcusable in a "community" website like this.
I'd like to thank you all for sticking through this with me, and keeping this site interesting, cheerful, fresh, and busy. Believe it or not, I have checked in every single day and I love what you guys have done with the place.
Thank you all so much for your patience with me. I need to become a whole person again and where better place to start than here?
