Warm warm Greetings to you all.
I been a silent member of this site for awhile like a year or so? ( i think?). I enjoy reading the posts, as they serve for nice food for being.
To say a little about myself..
My name is Craig but everyone calls me "Curry". Im 36yo male from Cleveland, Ohio.
I am also very into mediatation and Theravada Buddhism.
I have a little different approach to the same practise. I mean, I have been on retreats to Bhavana Society in W.V. and I do find very screne parks and forests great for meditation. But, here in Cleveland where I live my conditions are very different.
To describe it.. I grew in the city. As a youngster, I was a aerosol street artist,skateboarder.I knew my way through all the nooks and crannies of Clevealnd's inner-city ghetto's...Ever knowing that they would come back to serve truth to me.Now, in my later years... some of these places have served for great retreats and long silent meditations. I refer to them as "grunge" sittings. One might say that this is a type of ascetic practise however, I tend to enjoy the middleway reflection.
Overall, since I have no Temples , I guide myself under my own practise that is to my best in accord with Theravada teachings.
Thank you again!
