    Chatra Elana: "We just moved to a new apartment last week..."
    Congratulations regarding your successful and (sounds like) relatively suffering free move! Your children seem young enough (age 3) where they haven't yet formed any attachments to schools and neighborhood friends, thereby allowing them to make the move relatively free of separation anxiety.

    The reason I raise this issue is as a young (age 19) military man I moved several times to several different countries. I loved every move. It was exciting and interesting. I loved to travel. But, then as a young married ex-military man with jobs with international companies, and having moved several times due to career changes, reassignments and advancements. My family and I as a result learned all about a term called "Anomie", which I recommend to anyone in such a position review:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anomie

    Ironically, from a Buddhist perspective, when becoming familiar with this condition, and studying what has been learned about it as a sociological adjustment issue, the findings point out that the reason for much of our suffering is "attachment".

    Now, where have we heard that before?

    Seems that the deeper seated and longer the attachment, the greater the suffering as a result of separation.

    May this not be your experience.

    May your family enjoy the "new start" and prosper in your new environs.

    Hello everyone,

    I am settling into a new position working in an organization that offers settlement services to Newcomers to Canada. A lot of the work is familiar to me because I am still in Program Administration. But a lot of the program issues I am working with are new because I am working with staff who are dealing with the challenges of supporting newcomers to integrate into Canadian society.

    I am continuing my practice to maintain balance and perspective in life.

    Have a lovely weekend everyone.

    Regards

    Gene

    Hi, Aloka.

    Hope your recovery from the flu is making progress.

    My wife and I both had some kind of upper respiratory problem a few weeks back, which lasted almost six weeks, but both of us seem to have recovered. It was one of those events, which seemed to end surprisingly when we suddenly realized that neither of us continued to infect the other, and a trip to the grocery store didn't include Kleenex on the shopping list.

    Similarly, when I attended my two month follow-up with my surgeon regarding my heart valve replacement, I had no complaints, except for some weakness in my legs from raking and vacuuming leaves contributed to our yards as expected in The Fall in New Hampshire. This time of year never fails to maximize our outdoor enjoyment of leaf raking, but our local government has offered new curbside collection services, which reduces our annual leaf raking suffering.

    I hope you are feeling better, Aloka.

    I had a busy week. I am doing lights and sound for a community theatre production. The show opened last night, which made this past week "hell week": rehearsals almost every night. (This is after two months of weekly rehearsals.) At thursday night's dress rehearsal, I was still a bit "behind the power curve" and missed several lighting cues. But last night's opening show went flawlessly.

    The play is a murder mystery-comedy. We have some very talented actors, including my wife in her first major role, and they all bring it alive. The set is amazing, and there are several special effects.

    It is hard work, but very rewarding, and they are good people to work with.

    Thanks very much for sharing your experiences with the play, Kathy, it sounds like a lot of fun!

    Thank you also for your good wishes - I'm still feeling quite weak and groggy but not as bad as I was!
