Just for information, I've reverted to my old forum name of Spiny Norman ( previously "Porpoise" on here ).

Welcome back! (As long as you don't think I'm Dinsdale!)
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

An urchin necessity, it would seem. I'm glad the admin team was able to kelp out.

Fine by me - you're welcome under any name you care to use - but there's a disconnect between avatar and username. If you don't want to abandon the ocean altogether, perhaps you could use this:

The pelagic puns have me retching for my ginger supplement and my fisherman's friend.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
