Dear Blog family

As reflected in some recent posts, I’ve been walking a fine line with the crazies lately. Such periods often bring me full circle to a Buddhist state of desire elimination.

There are different ways people eliminate unwanted desires. Smoking patches, silent treatments, separation.

This is a small part of what I’ve been pondering during meditations recently, preparing to step into my very own place and come good on what I’ve been babbling about for nearly two years…


My head has such a great way of getting away with me. Sometimes I feel like so many things run through my mind during a day, it would be impossible to write them all down.

Then I walk out of work and across two blocks to the warm embrace of Elvis, in the middle of Times Square. I find myself free of any want or idea.

This is why I came to New York City.
