A couple of people asked about dana for the sangha but our wish is that all of your generosity be directed to Brian.
For those of you who were unable to join us yesterday or those who might want to listen to the talk again, the recording of it will be available on the Dharma Seed website beginning this evening. You can also access additional talks by Brian on the site.

And now, our thanks to Deb Tannenbaum for sharing this poem.
Sometimes by Sheenagh Pugh
Sometimes things don't go, after all,
from bad to worse. Some years, muscadel
faces down frost; green thrives; the crops don't fail,
sometimes a man aims high, and all goes well.
A people sometimes will step back from war;
elect an honest man, decide they care
enough, that they can't leave some stranger poor.
Some men become what they were born for.
Sometimes our best efforts do not go
amiss, sometimes we do as we meant to.
The sun will sometimes melt a field of sorrow
that seemed hard frozen: may it happen for you.
May all beings everywhere know peace and freedom,
Your Salida sangha board
