PostSubject: Hello from Storm   Thu Aug 25, 2011 6:35 am

Hello everybody, my name is Storm (You may have known me as David). I was a frequent visitor to Throssel Hole between 1992 and 1996 and a regular at my local SRMG in Aberdeen, Scotland. At the time I was very drawn to become a monk, but never did so. I have had a bit off a love-hate relationship to the OBC, its teachings and zazen over the years and every so often return to it. This forum is really helping me put some ghosts to rest and to get on with my life!

Blessings

Storm

Nice didge, man. Did you make it?

A friend of mine makes them. Once we made one together and tried it out. About an hour later the south of England was engulfed in a terrible storm.

We decided that that didge must summon up storms and that if it was ever to be blown again it would summon up the storm that will decimate civilization. No human has blown that didge in eight years. I have to admit I've been tempted though ^^

Hello Storm.

Welcome!

Yeah, this forum has also cleaned out a few of my own closets.

Now if you find one that helps with yardsales....

Still trying to wrap my head around the storm/Glorfindel exchange.

Which comes first, the storm or the didge?

Cheers
