This is a wonderful and beautiful written piece from the heart. Your comment, “I am no teacher and I have no real students; so perhaps we don’t need to take any of the above seriously” is striking because I believe each of us is a teacher and a student. We learn from the people we meet and we teach to those whom we meet.

Per the Buddhist Proverb, “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” All of us are teachers and all of us are students.

Well done my friend.
