This year I can not fly to the coast for the yearly retreat. Although I will go later in the year I still feel myself missing the trek. Not part of the local mandala.

Snow drips from the eves
weeds sticking up

Wisdom Lama

Having driven all day up-mountain to see the lama
we sit and have tea looking out off the mountain
down into Santa Cruz valley

My Son sitting next to me, this is a smile
to pass this on

no time, only duration

Lake Born

Been practicing Lakeborn vajra a lot this week. Before bed, 4 am, driving in the car, walking in the snowy wind.

Snow wind blows through appearances
drifts of mind cascade across the open field
