This and that and church

Four day weekend - using a day of vacation. Grilling out. Family together. NBA Playoffs, a few movies, the above ground pool finally all cleaned up and ready for a memorial day swim. Lucky to have times like these.

I taught Sunday School at church last week. Have only done that about 3 times in th last 5 years. (I used to go to church regularly and taught adult Sunday School a lot.) I talked on readings and attempted practices of Buddhist meditation to a small and welcoming group. Perhaps this is the kind of church that will pull me back through those doors - if at least some of them find Buddhist meditation interesting, .... It did create a lot of anxiety in me and there a lot of painful memories that still incline me to 'stay the hell out of Dodge.' So we'll see, slowly, what happens.

I had some thoughts happen while I was teaching, and that is something I miss - trying to talk about something seems to help me see some connection I hadn't seen. I guess that's one of the reasons I blog - helps to see things outside of yourself sometimes.

All of that is secondary of course to gaining some sense of connectedness with other people, and teaching and blogging both seem to work for me (much better than small talk at social mixers).
