I've been participating a little bit too much latlely in the forum.  I can't 
see any of my posting be useful to anyone.  When this happens the best for a 
practicioner is to quietly let go all the chat and lurk for a while.
See you later aligator, nor for a while cocrodile.
Thank you for all the company you have been giving through the weeks.

Or perhaps as Bill might say:  Whatever is happening, the practicing zenist's 
mind's effort is always directed toward remaining calm, alert and aware in the 
here and now, in the state of 'just THIS', and as much as possible without 
judgment, grasping, pushing away, conception-formation or comment.
