“England is the paradise of individuality, eccentricity,
heresy, anomalies, hobbies, and humors”
~George Santayana~

I fell in love with England when I visited in the London area a couple of years ago. Now I plan a return, to see the southwestern part, and Wales. Then I'll return to see the northern tip.

Maybe I should just stay there. I'm sure I'd be very happy since I am quite eccentric, some consider me heretical, I suffer some interesting anomalies and have lots of hobbies. I'm usually is quite good humor, too.

Best to you, Ruth.

I left England 40 years ago, and not a day passes that I don't think of it in a positive way.
To me it is all these qualities that makes England and the English so appealing..
Happy St Georges day by the way...!

Thanks for this map Ruth now I've got some idea of where you all live (the ones in UK anyway!)

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
