    Great dialogue on writing + meditation instruction!
    To Tiffany I would also suggest that the world becomes contemplative when we meditate, the world becomes non-dual. Also would suggest Writing Down the Bones, Natalie Goldberg's book. But also that there is nothing wrong with the "fallow" periods when one is not writing.
    Waylon, I loved what you said to Catherine about VCTR, proclamation of truth, being genuine, writing and art as an expression of sanity rather than entertainment, which he considered mere distraction. Also he liked living art, didn't like museums so much, but loved installations in which rooms looked lived in and welcomed people to linger and inhabit them. Bravo!

    Mama! Thanks for the advice! I wish I had you here in person to help! We'd be a good one-two punch (punch of love).

    I enjoyed these videos. Thanks for making buddhist concepts and meditation teachings accesible and explaining them well. I also grew up somewhat in the buddhist community too, as you know, but never really became a practicing buddhist.
