Hey there! Having technical difficulties with the pictures this week as Shad went and made a few changes. Oh, well!
Nothing new going on. I am about half way through my Philosophy class and getting ready for Math next. Sometimes I wish it were over, and other times I am glad it isn't. School has been fun for the most part, and full of good experiences.
I don't know if I ever updated, but we are no longer looking for a home here as we just can't justify spending so Much money on such little house. We plan to save up what we have and just buy when we land some place new.
Family is on their way for a visit this coming week which will be a nice change. We don't get to talk with anyone very often, and the girls miss their family back in Vegas, so this will be a nice healing time for them. We plan on going into the city, and maybe taking the kids to the zoo. If time permits, we might also take a trip to Monte ray.
Just something to share:
Nan-in, a Japanese maser during the Meiji era (1868-1912), received a university professor who came to inquire about Zen. Nan-in served tea. He poured his visitor's cup full, and then kept on pouring.
The professor watched the overflow until he no longer could restrain himself. "It is overfull. No more will go in!"
"Like this cup," Nan-in said, "you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?"
