meditating on the cover

LS book cover - October 10, 2014pm

Just what we’d expect to see on the cover of a poetry book on meditation…

Yet, it’s no mere cliche: in meditation we go beneath the surface, past the camouflage (the maya) of our mundane world…

And as we open to the depths, we open the flower.

Christmas Maya

Xmas wrapping paper - December 27, 2012p

I’m sending some maya to you this year: no Christmas present, just the wrapping paper for the present.

But I guess, in this case, the wrapping paper becomes the present…

It’s the present, and yet, it’s still wrapping paper for the present.
