A recent note from a long time member of community described himself as shy and unpracticed at communicating on a blog. As editors we are aware that we are challenging many of you to a new mode and one that may be keeping us in our seats too often and not moving.
But I just reread many parts of this blog and find it so inspiring. The comments we have so far are helpful and remind me that the practice is a great source of joy to me.
One advantage of this form is that you can take your time with it... go back and reread and savor other's thoughts on these subjects. I myself and still thinking about how to respond to Aileen Crow's thoughts about my article. It has been in my mind for a couple of weeks now and I am still not sure what I want to say, but it is nice to know that when I am ready to write the blog will be there. So even though it may be a response to something written a while back anyone can respond anew and refresh the conversation.
A great part of the joy of practicing is a deepening sense of myself. I hope the blog can bring us all into deeper and broader conversations.
