This page has quite a bit of overlap with my Org file. That's more for school assignments, appointments, errands, etc. but some sort of integration would be nice. Also, several of "projects" are more like habits I wish to cultivate than discrete actions, and Org-Mode has a "habits" module that would be useful for tracking them

"<cerebral_monkey> bipt: There's a really good book by Martine Batchelor called Meditation for Life, and her husband wrote a book called Buddhism without Religion that is great as well. That is how I delved deeper into it"

Greek reading suggestion: NT Greek. It's koine, a simpler (and later) dialect that you already have a good deal of grammar for. Best book to start with is Mark.
