when by chance we see the migrating birds in
autumn descending on a grove of junipers to
rest and eat; when we see children in a moment
when they are really children, when we know
love in our own hearts; or when, like the

at such times the awakening, the turning
inside out of all values, the "newness,"
the emptiness and the purity of vision
that make themselves evident, all these
provide a glimpse of the cosmic dance.
I am grateful for:
-My daughter Erin, her
husband John and their
wee one Emerson.
-My son, Michael and his
-My son Charlie and his
- My sons Peter and Alex.
-and I am grateful for

many fantastic people
traveling with me.
I'm having a blast!
Have an awesome weekend.
