Long Time No Blog

I just checked the blog and discovered to my embarassment that it's been almost a month since I've written anything here. And I've been deluged by requests to get back to it. (Okay, one guy asked)

Anyway, my only excuse other than sloth-and-torpor is that I've been pretty busy with other projects this last while. I'm leading a sutta study seminar on the Sutta Nipata and the preparation work is taking up a suprising amount of time. And I don't want to go in unprepared because it's a pretty sharp group! I've also just finished the first semi-finished draft of my historical novel about Ajatasattu. And I've been doing more teaching here at Arrow River; plus plowing snow, fixing generators and trying to find time to watch my breath.

So if anyone is still checking in here after that shamefully long gap, I'm not dead yet. Only one month closer.

Yo Bhante, what you might consider doing to interest your readers from time to time is to include some question and answer topics, i.e. you formulate the questions, let people add their five cents worth, and perhaps add your own answer later.

This is a typical Buddhist approach, carried out not only by Tibetans, but also practiced in a few Thai Wats I have stayed at, where people use it to stay up all night on full moon days. Just a thought.
