      Brenda, I’ve missed you a lot, too. In April, I had spent 4 to 6 hours daily to study Buddhism. The more I studied, the more I found out how little I knew. I was hoping that I could reach to a point so I wouldn’t have to spend that much time, but that never came.
      I know most retirees complain how fast time goes; I wonder if anyone has come up with a good solution to the problem. I certainly not. ;-(
      Sorry for the mumbling 😉 Have a wonderful day.

        Helen, I’ve been studying Buddhism for 8-10 years and I also have found I know and understand very little. At the begging of the year, I decided to read over and over again The Heart Sutra and now I find myself digging deeper and deeper into “emptiness.”
        As a retiree, I have found that there are moments when the days feel long; yet, the passage of time…weeks into months…goes by in a blink of an eye. Yet, Since my “markers” of time ( i.e. Mondays-beginning of another work week, paydays, school holidays, etc.) I sometimes don’t even know what day of the week it is.
        I hope you have a fun-filled day.

          Brenda, I, too, read The Heart Sutra over and over recently, trying to memorize it. And I’ve watched a couple of videos (Chinese videos 😉 trying to understand it better. I plan to watch a few more, since each person seems discussing it from a little different angle.
          I don’t think I have any “long” day since I retired. Most of the times, it was “What? It’s 11 pm already?” We, finally, are going to have a class reunion later this year. In preparing for the event, we got a chance to re-connect to many long lost old high school friends, and everyone was wondering where did the time go…
          Have a great day, Brenda.

      Thank you, Sally. I read your recent post and you are definitely more discipline than I am. Is that the reason that I don’t have enough time to do everything I like to do? I am thinking… 😉
      Have a wonderful day.

    I love the tunnel view made by tree. The sea (?) at the background makes me feel relaxed.
