    Back Home

    Hi All,

    I am back home to Tsukuba. Of course, we are supposed to be "always at home" wherever we are ... but it sure is nice to come home to one's own friends and family.

    I am sorry that I could not take everyone along with me on this trip, but the internet just would not allow it. It was a good excuse to get away from the television, newspapers and computer for awhile ... certainly none of that in many of the places I stayed.

    I am going to try to catch up on some of the topics here on the Forum, and to restart the daily "Sit-a-Longs" this evening. I will be talking on the netcast a little about several topics I hoped to discuss while in Vietnam, but which I could not. Such things as visiting some places connected to the American war and seeing so many of the effects and suffering still around, visiting a country where life is a lot poorer and tougher than back home (but also simpler in many ways) and, of course, visiting some very traditional Buddhist monasteries. It was a pretty challenging trip, more than a relaxing vacation for sure.

    Yes, it is good to be home.

        Jundo,
        It's good to have you back. You have been missed - but even the teacher needs some recharge time!

        I am sure your family is glad to have you back home.

        Gassho,
        Alex
