My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a poet, teacher, healer, gardener and cook. My first book of poems is called "A Stone Blessing," mostly all about the Sonoran desert; my second book is a narrative epic poem called "The Lotus King" about the life of Padmasambhava, a great 8th century master who founded Buddhism in Tibet; and a third book will soon be published called "Breathing with Wings in October Light." (And have about four other manuscripts I'm working on currently.) In addition, I've converted my home into "The Tibetan Meditation Center of Tucson" (I've hosted some great meditation masters over the years--anyone out there who can handle the extraordinary blessings of some truly Sublime Ones who pass through my space?), I do healing work with Vogel crystals, light and sound, in which I use a highly advanced, cutting edge technology from one of the great scientific minds of the last 50 years Marcel Vogel, I teach writing at the Tohono O'odham Community College in Sells, Arizona, I try to get myself to remote places of the Sonoran desert as often as possible, and I used to be a restaurateur/professional natural foods chef.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Mainly, my focus is how I can be of service to others, in which I strive as much as I can in the practice of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism. I'm diggin' whatever unfolds in this beautiful, magical, mystical life on planet Earth...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
poetry, cooking, healing arts.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I would like to think that I evoke a kind and gentle presence when others first meet me. I could hardly speak for others, nor can I read minds.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
food, water, love, poetry, the smiles of those beloved to me, camping in remote wilderness.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
the importance of developing compassion in a world in very short supply of this quality, and how Love is a dream of the sound of the universe beating its wings in the deepest motes of the very tiniest particles, a butterfly's breaststroke across the shadow of a rabbit's horn, the divining incipience of newly-formed things, a rose's breath steaming up a sky's plate-glass. Language fails to apprehend it. Fools court it with the insouciance of charlatans. Dreamers fall into its well and think that dry land has become a mirage that always floats away at the merest touch. Poets think they touch it when they touch the breast of their lover with fervent gratitude, only to see it wither away at sunset. This thing that is unborn evades us all who seek to find it, as where can be found the source of Source itself, and where will these words ever come to rest? Who will dream its loss and, in so doing, wake up?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
taking in a movie, meditating, reading, or out dancing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is so private not even I know it, in which it can only be mutually discovered...
