Today, the chapter in my Level 2's reading class about instant changes to the Earth's suface (via earthquakes, floods, hurricanes...) then I came in and read this post on my phone. An interesting moment of synchronicity!


Just beautiful. And what a reminder of the nature of emptiness/boundlessness. It great to see you enjoying your life, Barry!
