The spirit of the universe as I experience it
is playful, loving and deep.
My life is the delightful evolution of living in that spirit.
And because I need all the help I can get,
I engage in a variety of practices—
meditation, hiking the endless mountain trails out my backdoor,
writing essays, caring for animals,
reading aloud the wisdom of saints and sages,
and the two you’ll find here:
drawing; as well as building (and photographing) stone sculptures.
