Grüß dich und Servus von Bayern! Genauer gesagt, von Franken, also im Norden Bayerns.

yes, its wonderful!
“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

Thank you, Bhante :D This link is highly appreciated.

I very much appreciate the friendly welcome here :)
