Long Shadows of Practice

These poems are rooted in meditation and blossom in the light of human experience. This book is about the intersection of repetition and progress. What is done over and over silhouettes what is novel and surprising. Long Shadows of Practice is philosophical yet felt, quiet and funny, fantastical and full of heart. It lands lightly with hope in the possibilities of connections.

Curiosity pulls me, compassion pushes me, and the mystery of consciousness sustains me. So I write. These books help open awareness and expression. They are gentle reminders that every moment has both fullness within and context around that are always available for more exploration.
