      Thanks, friends. I like to keep my focus on the practice, not the number. Seems like the bigger the number gets, the less it feels like a big deal. I think that's actually a product of long-term daily practice-- developing a sense of non-attachment to the destination or result-- seeing the journey or the process as the important thing. :)
