Like many personal blogs of its era, this blog is moribund, a casualty of what we might call "the Facebook effect." However, as of late 2015, two things are clear: (1) The Indie Web is a thing, and (2) the re-decentralization of the web is a thing. So who knows? 2016 2017 2018 (!) could be the year this blog rises from its own ashes. Stay tuned!

Wednesday, 31 December 2003
A spiritually-enlightened person I know asked me, “Are you the same person now that you were at the beginning of 2003?” I didn’t even have to think: This past year was transformative in a way that no other year of my life has ever been. My answer was an immediate “No!”

My friend smiled warmly and said, “Well, then. It must have been a good year.”


Happy New Year to all readers. May you find stillness and peace within, and see it echoed in the world around you.

So, you want to fill us in on some of the transformation, or are you just gonna be cagey and reserved? I'm not being nosey, but I am curious to know what this year has meant to you in specific.

"Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes / How do you measure a year in the life / How about LOOOOOOVE!" I am privileged to have witnessed some of your transformation. And it is good.
