I have been praying for you, sending metta. Your last message sounded like
a slight loss of faith, and I'm hoping faith has found you again by now.
I'm wondering if you are still envisioning beginning the world
circumambulation from Leverett on Mar 21. The Nippozan will be in Boston by
then, on their Wake up Peace! walk... They have already left (see
www.peacepagoda.org/walk.htm). WE had a blizzard this week, it dumped up to
2 feet of snow throughout the region, I don't know how they fared with that
and whether they are still on schedule.
It's incredible, the news said it cost more than $20 million to remove the
snow that first day after. Then the following two days were spring-like
warm, with a blazing sun. More than half the snow was then melted for free
by solar power!
Speaking of solar power, I have thought of a possible support vehicle,
which is a renewable energy demonstration/education van that runs on
biodiesel. I don't know if the vehicle or driver are available, but you
could contact him. He's a former coworker, named Mark Skinder. His website
