The Raw Spot

I had a loss of an immediate family member this week, and it has reminded me of the following talk that I find comforting. It is Buddhist in nature, but don't worry, people are not sitting around chanting.

Peace to you.

Thank you for your thoughtful messages after this sad event. I imagine many (if not all) of you know how many tasks there are to be done after such a thing, and thoughts to be sorted through. I will be back, and when I am I will walk over to my favorite corner of the forum, put something up, and then do my usual sporadic contributions.
