The Professional
The Personal
As if
they could be
so neatly

These web pages reflect my passions, past, and present,
professional and personal.
My passions will lead me to my future.
My present is very, very good. My past got me here.
I am grateful for it all.

What is most important is to find peace and to share it with others.

Anger diminishes our power to distinguish right from wrong, and this ability is one of the highest human attributes. If it is lost, we are lost. Sometimes it is necessary to respond strongly, but this can be done without anger. Anger is not necessary. It has no value.

-- His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Underneath all the texts, all the sacred psalms and canticles, these watery varieties of sounds and silences, terrifying, mysterious, whirling and sometimes gestating and gentle must somehow be felt in the pulse, ebb, and flow of the music that sings in me. My new song must float like a feather on the breath of God.

Each friend represents a world in us, a world not born until they arrive. And it is only by this meeting that a new world is made.

-- Anais Nin

The lesson which life repeats and constantly enforces is "Look under foot." You are always nearer the divine and the true sources of your power than you think. The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive. The great opportunity is where you are. Do not despise your own place and hour. Every place is under the stars, every place is the center of the world.

-- John Burroughs
