Dharmavidya has blogged about breakfast conversations at The Buddhist House. There are usually so many lively and wideranging discussions and opportunities for on-the-spot teaching over meals there. So I'm feeling deprived of my sangha - the company and the inspiration - my breakfast is usually a solitary affair. Oops - sorry - the cats are rather put out at that. They usually try to persuade me that my breakfast time is time for their elevenses. You know how cats are at twisting the truth. And twisting humans round their paws.
