Thank you, Ben, for your service here and best wishes for your new employment. You have always been a thoughtful moderator, able to convey in a few wise words what would take most of us a 100 words to get out.

Yes, thank you Ben. May this new job opportunity be a condition for your realization of the Serene State, friend!

And thank you, too, Retro, as it would be very unfortunate to have a power vacuum at Dhamma Wheel.

Please be well, friends! :anjali:

Thanks everyone.
I got home a little while ago which ends the first of my ten day stints in an incredibly beautiful and remote parts of Tasmania working and living with a small group of people. I have been able to spend a little more time on my practice but I am also splitting my free time by studying the local human history, geology, fauna and flora as well as getting to know the locale by foot and kayak.
fortunately, or unfortunately, when I away I am without internet, cell phone and television reception. Hence my decision to step down from my role as administrator and moderator.
The new job is intense and usually a lot of fun. As one of our guests said today, I wear "a lot of different hats", but then, all of us do.
I hope you and your loved ones are well and happy.
With metta,

Ben

loud gush the streamlets,

Thank you for every thing that you did for everyone here, and what you did for me in particular. You taught many of us by walking the walk rather than just talking the talk.

All the best for the future.

Thanks for your very professional and kind assistance over the years, Ben. Hope some day to visit Tasmania as well, perhaps in another life-time. :candle: :candle:

What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
