Relaxing in Chicxulub

Mostly relaxing times and reading with a walk to Progreso and back a few times a week.  Walking the beach to Chicxulub for Pancho's seems like a good idea today or.. well ..  I have a severe case of inertia going on.  Maybe continue reading Anderson Cooper "Dispatches From The Edge".  It is a difficult book to swollen given how it exposes our undeveloped human collective brain.

Shikoku Henro 88 Temple Walk 2017

Again  I will walk the beautiful pilgrimage in Shikoku.  So many people have been kind and encouraged me in various journeys.  It is a very special emotional and physical journey to undertake but the tranquility and compassion it brings are life affecting.  In my blog I will try to include some Japanese words as it is a Japanese pilgrimage after all.  A special thanks to the many friends who have helped me learn a little bit of Japanese.  Your patience is wonderful. Arigato gozaimashita.  Yoroshiku onegaishimasu.
Much of the journey is about empathy and compassion which are fundamental to Buddhist philosophy.  In a world where there is not enough kindness hopefully - Negawakuba - we can all try harder to make things better for all.  May Peace Prevail On Earth.

Great to be in Progreso and Chicxulub again.  Our winter home.  See Andrea's blog for all the details as she really does a nice job on that.
