Finally …

Buddhism and the Science of HappinessSo after days of back pain, I’m finally sorted. No idea what caused it, some kind of muscular spasm according to the doctor, but it’s gone.

I don’t suppose I realised quite how tired I was, the pain woke me every time I moved, so sleeping hadn’t come easily. But last night, having worked until some ungodly hour, I went out like a light and slept soundly till nearly midday.

Funny stuff pain, it can affect your whole life-state, even when you fight against it. Several times today I have found myself realising that it’s not longer there, a bit strange really.

Tonight I have ordered William Woollard’s new book, Buddhism and the Science of Happiness. I’ve heard a little of it on Jason Jarrett’s A Buddhist Podcast and William’s work is always very interesting, but there’s nothing like reading the book. I’ve also ordered a copy of The Buddha, Geoff and Me, to replace the copy I gave to someone a while back.

With the back sorted, I’m looking forward to being back in the office tomorrow. You can only take so much lying in bed, and I’m hoping we will be launching the new website too, so won’t that be exciting?
