What a time it has been! The year-long COVID pandemic seems to be easing with a competent and caring administration in charge, vaccines and spring on the way. I hope your meditation practice continues to support you in staying loving, balanced and clear in these very challenging times.  I’m wishing you well!

Prayer Flags in AnnapurnasThe Zen master Ikkyu was once asked to write a distillation of the highest wisdom. He wrote only one word: Attention.
The visitor was displeased. “Is that all?”
So Ikkyu obliged him. Two words now.
          Attention. Attention.
