Vesakh happened during the interval since I last posted. Last year I made a big deal of it here. This year, I just did it. Nothing ritualized but took the day off (got it right this year) and was observant and mindful. It was very nice to follow Twitter feeds, too, as there are no Theravadan Buddhists nearby.
This was really the first true observance of Vesakh. It happened because, in December 2010, the Christmas spirit was finally and completely gone. A letting go. Very nice.
Now, of course, I must let go of Vesakh. You just do these things, don’t think about them too much.
