This evening I was going to attend our meditation group where there will be a visiting monk. Then I planned instead to meditate at home earlier in the day and to leaflet for the General Election in the evening. Then the veinous condition in my legs intervened, making it advisable to return to Plan A, to sit instead of to walk. Meanwhile, I find time to blog.
