I'd just like to take the opportunity to introduce myself.

My name is Steve Reilly and I'm from a rural town in the Pennines called Mossley.
I live in a 230 year old stone cottage with my Partner Gez, 2 children Molly and Florence and a lovely but extremely energetic dog called Scooby.

I have been practicing Soto Zen for over 8 years under the direction of Rev. Master Peter Bonatti at the Rochdale Zen Retreat.

I found this forum by chance and look forward to connecting and sharing with everyone on here.

Bye for now...

In Gassho

Hi Steve -- very nice to have you here. I hope you find the forum a good place to visit and join in discussions.

I think you have won some type of award for being the first to post a profile picture. (I don't know what kind of award, yet, but we'll try to make it something pretty cool.)

Please tell me your cottage has a thatched roof, and the picture will be complete Smile

Hi Lise...

Thanks for the welcome Surprised)

Unfortunately I live in the wrong part of the UK for thatched roofs! However I live in a very beautiful place surrounded by some lovely scenery... Hills, lakes and moorland.

Here's a photo of the valley I live in to make up for the lack of a thatched roof. I'd like to be able to say that this is the view from my front door! It's not but we're fortunate enough to have all this 10 minutes walk away.







It's a beautiful area for walking, climbing, kayaking... Very Happy

Hello Steve, and welcome. Your example prompted me to upload a photo to the avatar option in my profile. Good idea. Nice area you live in. I'm in the Pacific Northwest in the US. Also very pretty place.

With palms joined,

Kyogen

Having the opportunity to help and be a member of this community is a cool enough award anyway! Very Happy

Hi Steve,

Just a quick 'hi' from over the hills.

I am in the hills between Macclesfield, Buxton and Congleton at Rushton - not too far away from you!

Take care,


Andi Sinclair

Hi Andi,

Lovely place Very Happy I worked at a company in Prestbury and quite a few of the employees lived that way. I also have a friend who lives just below the Cloud so I know that area quite well...

Enjoy your day!
