Got clobbered in a game of chess last evening. Chess continues to be one of those games that I want to be more interested in, but find my enthusiasm wanes most times that I play.
I was asked why I left the monastery. One reason was that I wanted to have the potential for a relationship. I had forgotten that. Now, although not in a relationship, I am at least living with the possibility of having one.
Lately, I had forgotten to view this as something good.
