The Buddha at Huffington Post


Check it out, the Buddha makes an appearance in a Huffingtonpost.com commentary. The usual lack of texture, but hey, it is not supposed to be a philosophical tract. A quick read of the comments is perhaps most revealing about how people see Buddhism, and political action seen through a "buddhist le ...>

On the Strength of All Conviction…


Oh, Just in case I forgot to post this poem, here it is. It speaks of mindfulness to me: On the Strength of all Conviction and the Stamina of Love by Jennifer Michael Hecht Sometimes I think We could have gone on All of us. Trying. Forever. But they didn't fill the desert with pyramids. ...>

Hillary in the Woodshed

Dispatch from Somewhere in Middle America


Well, perhaps not middle America. Not yet anyway. And I always feel a twinge of unease when I use the word America to designate only the United States -- but "somewhere in Middle United States" doesn't have the same ring to it.
