Hello everyone, I'm from central Pennsylvania and have been lurking here for a bit.

I first became interested in Buddhism about 6 1/2 - 7 years ago. I started out reading on Zen and practicing zazen and such, but ultimately as I learned more about Theravada I gravitated toward that. I spent a week at Abhayagiri some years ago and loved the atmosphere at that location. I'd like to go back for a visit but, alas it is a continent away.

I lapsed in my practice later, but have recently - over the past several months - returned to regular practice and recommitted myself to Theravada Buddhism. I mainly practice samatha meditation (anapanasati). There's no Theravada community anywhere within reasonable distance of where I live, so that's the main reason I decided to join the board (there is a Chan monastery about 15 minutes away and I'm considering popping by there also).

So, that's a quick bit about me, looking forward to some excellent Dhamma friends in the virtual world.
