Sometimes it takes a Hippopotamus to lighten the mood

The best place for your efforts

I was late to wake this morning, so the neighbourhood was up by the time I reached my front step for meditation. I like the early mornings, not just because the mind is more amenable to practice, but because the air is so fresh, particularly now with the spring rains and the fresh green growth. … Continue reading The best place for your efforts
