I'm Boo and new here. I became Buddhist several years ago, but am still very early in my study. I'm 34, married; I design and make clothing, read obsessively, collect music, write (short stories, poetry, and a long suffering autobiography); I"m a bit weird (ok, alot weird (smile); I talk too much, laugh too loud, and I run on 100 mph most of the time and rarely sleep. That's a bit about me, I guess.
My life has become extremely complicated over the past few years, and it's hindered my Dharma studies. I'm trying to resume where I left off and get back to learning. I'm afraid I need a bit of encouragement; I suspect I've been a bit lazy.
I've enjoyed reading what I have, so far, here, and I look forward to getting to know everyone. I hope you all don't mind dumb questions; I'll no doubt have a PILE of them. :)
First thing I wanted to ask, is could someone suggest some base-knowledge, starting point, books for me? I'd really appreciate any suggestions!
Peace of heart,
