Warm thanks to rococonnor for honoring me with the Beautiful Blogger Award. In her announcement, she describes me as “another fellow journeyer, with a knack for description and a wit and wisdom that always makes me smile.” Thanks, sweetie… your daily insight about the challenges of meditation and reflections as a result of meditation remind me to feel grateful every day of my life and to forgive myself when I fall short of my goals. Together, they are the makings for a really interesting book some day. I recommend that anyone curious about meditation give her blog a read. I have a respect for anyone who can manage this skill.
