Jane is at Tassajara on a three month retreat.  I’m here in my home looking out on green. We’ve enjoyed and savored enough rain to end the drought.  I wonder what calls me now.

My latest book is close to budding forth. Still shuttered, it wants to rise and flower in spring light.

Titled Airing Out the Fairy Tale: Trekking through Nepal and Midlife, it looks back twenty-five years ago to review, integrate and bring me closer to where I am now.  Though I feel younger than ever, chronologically, I’m an elder, full aware of harvesting the wonder in each breath.   Be with me now.
