I live in South Dakota, and I hate cold. I fell in love with running a few years ago, but I always stopped in the fall and didn't start up again until late spring. I don't like cold air touching my skin or breeze chilling my sweat. It is miserable to me. [...]

When I Found Buddhism

It was around 2009 when I started longing to belong to some sort of group. I was no longer Christian, but I missed belonging to a congregation. I didn’t need a group of people or a religion in order to be a good person. I learned morals growing up, and [...]
