Now That I Have Your Attention

June 17, 2009

Hehehe.  :)

Bienvenue, folks.  Especially folks from Facebook who came here hoping for nudie pictures on the beach!  (My stat count shot up like three times the normal hits after I posted that picture of my bare back.)  Hope you’re all doing well.

Just a coupl’a quick announcements.  First, I’ve added a Friendly User Guide with a few tips on interacting with the site, so check that out and let me know what you think!

Also, for the next two weeks or so, starting tomorrow, I’ll be serving at another Vipassana Center (this one in France).  Which means no internet for this little dhamma elf.  However, thanks to the wonders of technology, I can set up posts to publish themselves automatically — so every other day there’ll be a new batch of photos or a snippet of email.  (We’re almost all caught up, by the way!)  So stop in while I’m gone, have a look around, and we’ll reconnect when the month changes over.

Ok, I think that’s it.  Je suis très fatuigée après d’un voyage de 15 heures en bus de la nuit, de Barcelone á Paris.  I am thinking of the African couple and the South Asian man who were taken off the bus by the police in the middle of the night, when we stopped for checks at the French border.  I hope they are doing all right.  The whole episode, difficult to watch under any circumstances, seemed especially surreal at 3 in the morning, after having being quasi-awakened by a grim-faced officer demanding my passport.

It’s a crazy world, friends.  I’m grateful to be going to the meditation center, to keep learning how to handle the craziness, and to help others learn how to deal, too.

peace,

katie
