Rain

Rain makes me realize how restless I am, like the clouds that hug the nearby mountains, roaming, appearing, vanishing. When I was eight months old, my mother tells me, I climbed out of my playpen. (Probably hit my head, too.) I still want out. Thinking about going to India this coming year. Yet the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh have taught me to find refuge in the present moment, the only moment. Breathing in, I know I am breathing in. Breathing out, I know I am breathing out -- the breath as…See More

Cries lost on the wind

My book is late. It's a long, sad story, but it will be available at http://www.murderasacalltolove.com soon. Actually the website is up and running, and I'm blogging there. In the meantime, on this rainy morning, found this haiku buried in one of my husband, Philip's emails. He is so talented, and this is exactly how I feel this today:Still ochred oak leavesLate autumn so persistentCries lost on the windSee More

Murder as a Call to Love

My book, Murder as a Call to Love, is to be published this month by Cloud Cottage Editions in Black Mountain. The story, my nonfiction story, hinges on the murders of three people in my family and of how I was finally able to forgive the murderer. We're hoping this book will be of help to people who have suffered any catastrophic loss.  Also it may be of interest to inmates and those who work in prisons, as well as students of Zen Buddhism. See More
