This is our library in Sudbury. It used to be the Corn Exchange and was built back in 1840-1 at a cost of over £2000; farmers and corn merchants met there on market days and sold their corn by sample.

I saw her obit today in the Times. She was 94! She was a widow for 33 years!

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
