What do you like about being “here”?  “I can put all my energy into Dharma work without concern for “making a living”; the support of the sangha.”

What are you learning?  I am learning how to overcome obstacles, stay in the present moment, and let go of attachments (especially useful while traveling). In terms of practical skills I am learning to work with computer programs, plan long overseas trips spending as little as possible, and how to sell our books & art in other countries when I do not speak the language.
