    So nice to see your blog; to know you’re well; to read your writing.

    Perhaps it’s time for me to sit down and write something by hand. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Hello there!

    I’ve been a – what did you call it – a skulker? In other words I often enjoy reading your blog, but I don’t leave comments. I didn’t know if it’d be off-putting to know your boyfriend’s mom reads your blog! But of course I’m nothing but impressed when I do, and move towards enlightened by getting to share your sharp awareness and generous heart through pictures and words. Thank you for helping make my son so happy. When I describe your relationship with him to friends I simply say that you both are about the most gentle spirited/loving hearted people I know, and to see you together is a beautiful thing. It’s a treat to be able to look in on you guys through your blog. Stay warm back East, and isn’t snow an invigorating thing?
    Happy Valentine’s Day to you and Ry! Rebecca

    Thank you for this wonderful de-skulking, Rebecca. (Sidenote: I’m a big fan of your poetic re-wordings, à la the legendary “petulatank.”) Your support and warmth really mean a lot to me. And every day I feel grateful to know your son.

    Hope you and Dan are having a great day!

    Hey, I just ran into your blog post “The Dangers of Compassion” and I’m wondering if you succeeded in finding a radical Sangha in the Bay Area. I’m on the lookout! Thanks!
