Afternoon Meditation


Afternoon meditation sits on the edge of life and death. Layer upon layer unfold before me as I hear and see and feel power beyond imagining. Waves crash against rocks, sweep sand and castle and footprint and crab, then deposit new treasures on this shore.

It is our shore, Asilomar State Beach in California that draws us the living–human, dog, gull, and fly–to greet the dead–rock, sand, shell, seaweed. But none of it is dead. Slowly but continually transformation changes everything. There is no choice. Only this moment to breathe … in awe.

Sabbatical Countdown


Hello, Blogosphere!

In two short weeks I’ll be going on a 12-week sabbatical, with travel plans to Santa Barbara and Pacific Grove, California; several states in India (!); Boston, Massachusetts; and various places in Texas! This is such a wonderful opportunity for personal growth and transformation. The plans in place provide a framework, but I expect to be surprised by the people, places, and experiences on the journey.

It only seemed right to get a blog started and invite YOU along.
