I Am Home

"Looking deeply in to reality, you can discover many things. You can surmount so much suffering and counter many wrong perceptions. If we can abide peacefully in the ultimate dimension, we will not drown in the ocean of suffering, grief, fear and despair."  (Thich Nhat Hanh, "No Death, No Fear.")

On Monday, earthquakes in China and coffee in Menlo Park.  On Tuesday, Robert Rauschenberg passes on to his next magnificent work.  On Wednesday, rest.  On Thursday, Andrew Ogus is a happy camper.  What might Friday bring?  "I am home."

"When we live in the present moment, it is possible to live in true happiness." (Hahn)
