OK, for the two people who’ve been wondering where I’ve been here goes. I don’t normally take a solid month off from the blog. It’s probably my biggest break since starting in 2005. Here’s the deal.

I just returned from a month long sabbatical in which I visited a little known Buddhist temple on the outskirts of a town called Nipinnawasee, California. Between there and Bootjack lies a little mountain on the side of which a temple sits that is inhabited by a little known teacher named Arvis Joen Justi. I was accompanied by his student Adyashanti as we sat quietly and contemplated whether the wind or the flag was blowing above the temple. We meditated on this for a solid month, taking only small breaks for a bite of rice and tofu and some water to wash it down*.

We never came up with a good answer so I returned home to take up matters of more pressing consequence. Like rebuilding my kitchen from the ground up, getting the two year old down for a nap and the girls off to soccer camp while running a business that has now turned into 3. Oh, and this here blog. Yes. I’m back, ladies and gents. Have Katy bar the door.

But hey. Don’t call it a comeback.

*of course none of this is true. i mean, the facts are right, but the truth is a bit different.

    been wondering about you, but i try not to be nosey. i thought you had become completely disillusioned with politics and decided to quietly fade away. heh

    recently had a scrumptious tofu dish at mint cafe on coventry in cleveburg, then walked down the street to buy something called a “weeping yogi.” not sure if it's buddhist or hindu in origins and i don't really care. i bought it for gf in the hopes she'd transfer her sorrows to it instead of crying all the time and blaming everything on me. can you imagine that shite? lol

    welcome back.
