Thanks Mason, always appreciate.

my biggest problem is ill-will. Which doesn't fit with the bodhisattva ideals.

i think, i can take care of.

Perfect, then come to my funeral and have a laugh!

hiya, Fuki, et al.,

Thanks!

Broken bone healing; Big toe of the right foot! Painful som-ma-b ("son of a bitch"). But we've all had worse.

Luckily, it was not big toe of the wrong foot!

Blessings!, All of y'all,

Tnx, Marcel,

Joe, don't know about that.
You might remember when I broke my big right toe a few years ago after someone ELSE dropped a railroad tie on it (yes a woodworkers accident) I spend a few weeks in the hospital with infection and necrosis and the doctors weren't sure if the toe could be saved, spend about 6 months in a wheelchair for something as "simple" as a toe, also 48 hours of the worst pain I ever experienced/witnessed leading to unfathomable experiences and interesting and strange gates.

"but" "so" a blessing, as always.

How did you (or someone else) brake it?

Is this Mason's dominant alternate personality asking or someone I haven't met yet? Wherever he is I'm sure you can make him come out and play, he must have a trigger.

i got a little toe one bone is broke in half, lol. Does not bother me that much. on the other foot, something wrong with a toe, crushed metatarsal and hammer-toe there. I had split a wrist bone in half on the left thumb area like 30 years ago, it worked itself around until it severed the tendon and the thumb would close but not open. Showed this to the doctor... was like "Oh that's an easy diagnosis" ... that one needed tendon transfer surgery (where i learned about neural plasticity) ~ all this little stuff from occupational injury. Not much pain really, quite the opposite as mr.fuki

Is it true Bodhidharma lost the ability to walk from too much sitting?

Time can do that to a body if the yogi permits it.
I find myself more concerned about the state of his eyeballs.

but I mean the zen singing zenspace Joe
