    Greetings

    Hello,

    My name is Christopher, go by Chris, 43, live in Texas, USA, near Dallas. I began flirting with Buddhism in late adolescence, but it didn't click until my early 30s when I expanded from more overview style books about it to suttas from the Pāli cannon and writings of mainly scholarly, Theravaden monks, such as Bhikkhus Bodhi, Thanissaro and Anālayo. My practice is solitary and, despite many struggles with it, has played a central role in my life for the past dozen years.

    Some months ago I registered here and occasionally peruse recent posts. Nearly every time, I encounter something helpful. So I thought I should try to reciprocate on these occasions too. Hopefully, sharing my own experiences, perspectives and questions may be as helpful to you as yours are to me.

    Warm regards
