‘ i imaging that Yes is the only living thing’ ~ e.e. cummings

The month and half since last post has seen spiritual catharsis, various sicknesses, good lovin’, rest, mind blowing walk in old growth tall trees, navel gazing, silent retreat at Esalen and finally a return to work. Still meditating everyday to keep the thread of the Unknown and Unknowable alive in the Marketplace.? Some snippets and links to photosets:

All Hallows Eve journal post. When I first moved to my 769 place I thought I heard coyotes deep in one evening.? “No coyotes here” neighbors said and I did not hear them again until last night, four years later, yipping and keening in one of the nearby creek drainages, calling us.
