Ven Pesala's above msg should neatly wrap it. It probably won't, but it should. Thankyou, bhante, for taking the time to write this.

Thanks Venerable Pesala and Tilt. At this point, I'll close the thread.

“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.
