What love means to me is I love spending time with my family and friends. What I love to do is going to Deer Park. It is a Buddhist monastery. It is very unusual. Deer Park has a Tea Room. The tea room is at Solidity Hamlet and Clarity Hamlet. You can also have bonfires. Dennis and his dog Smokey had a bonfire with us. It can be very cold at night. Trust me it gets super cold. That’s what love means to me, being with my family. Deer Park is where Monks and Nuns live. To live there you need to shave your head and wear brown and blue outfits. There is a koi fish pond.
