The Holding Pattern…

I have been trying to get to the story about Rowan’s adventures down to Ashland, at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival… Almost there, but this is a nice sojourn along the way.Very busy, working at 3 different locations which is a bit wearing. I hope to get sometime off soon to get up the road to visit with my dad, who at 87 is now having some problems walking about. He is a tough one, but his hips are playing up.…

Samsara… Nirvana….

Identity of the world (samsara) and nirvanaMind is the origin of all things. Mind is the universal seed, Both samsara and nirvana spring forth from it. As is nirvana, so is samsara.

In this state of highest bliss There is neither self nor other. Whatever you see,…

They had a nice 3 week stay on the big island….It seems…

But if a single leaf holds the eye, it will be as if the remaining leaves were not there. – (Takuan Soto) I have not gotten…

Back To The Northlands…

Arrived late yesterday from picking up Rowan from his 2 weeks in Ashland… some 600 miles of driving over the weekend. I-5, does not improve with age… Driving no longer holds much attraction for me. Way to much traffic. We saw 2 terrific accidents; one heading south, and one coming north. People are driving way too fast! It was nice being back in the Siskiyous… and suffice to say, Rowan came back a transformed young man from his 2 week…
