My blog is an eclectic mix of personal reflections, quotes, analyses of issues of power and exploitation, reviews of books, and a few snippets of photos from my life. It is all my rudimentary record of my humble experiences. Yet in all things, the common thread is that I try to ground all of my writing--and indeed the entirety of my life--in the contemplative and mystical tradition. I am grounded in the groundless.
That may have been me that you passed on the sidewalk today, and I was smiling back at you.
This is an age that, by its very nature as a time of crisis, of revolution, of struggle, calls for the special searching and questioning which are the work of the monk in his meditation and prayer....the monk abandons the world only in order to listen more intently to the deepest and most neglected voices that proceed from its inner depth. - Thomas Merton
