LOLA

From the smiling faces of children who happily unwrapped small presents I was able to find for them here on the island….to the children who unexpectedly joined me for dinner, - Read More -

DOOR NUMBER 7

PERSONHOOD

One of the greatest revelations I learned from being around a Zen master is the concept of being stuck in personhood. That is the drama of everyday life we feel when we become attached.

MEETING MOOJI

This May, I traveled to Lisbon to meet with a Zen Master named Mooji. I have been meaning to write about this experience, but I confess…finishing my novel has gotten in the way of that. However, today, one of my cousins asked me to explain, “…what is Mooji is to [me],” and so now seemed - Read More -

ENERGY COST

I believe in the Infinite. I don’t particularly like to think about limits, as I believe we are limitless. However, I do believe that our body forms are limiting.
