Pandaluvsyarn: winner of the 50 members Giveaway Celebration.

we are wanting to a Virtual knit night there is a thread with info for Date/Time.

Got accepted to a Meditation retreat: Vispassana ( also called Insight Meditation Movement ) and i am excited.. 10 days of silence and reflection.
vipassana means insight into the true nature of reality, mindfulness of breathing which are said to lead to insight.The term vipassana has gained popularity due to the influence of the Vipassana movement which started in the 1950’s in Burma, although this influence is especially discerneable in the use of mindfulness as a practice to handle emotions.
I am going to be gone from Jun4- 15th by the time you see this video I will be there. No phone, no ipad or reading or anything distracting.  Hmm wonder if i can knit. I will be bringing for the trip up north  which will take a few hours  to get to the retreats.
