This is my blog. It consists of almost-daily postings -- sometimes about the Zen Buddhism I have admired and practiced; sometimes about other 'spiritual' matters; and mostly about whatever strikes my fancy. Except to the extent that it might help others to consider what kind of fool they would prefer not to be, this blog does not aim to help anyone. (Emphasis added)Do I fall short of my own disclaimer? Sure. Everyone likes applause and pats on the back and other subtle ways of elevating their often-well-camouflaged stock. Everyone has fallen into the sharing-is-caring trap and I'm no exception. But this is just my blog with my bias. I write because writing is something I seem to do, can't or won't escape ... and, to quote the bard, "Why not?"
I'd love to make a million bucks off it all or be showered in some ticker-tape parade of approval, but generally I don't care about that ... writing is just what I do. I'm not writing in support of some hoary or holy institution or philosophy. It's just me and my warts and some small version of practicing the only compassion that makes much sense to me ... be yourself. Self-involved navel-gazing? Sure, if you like.
I could be and probably am wrong, wronger, wrongest.
But that's not my call.
