This wiki includes its own blog but for now I am writing more at Equanimous Passion. Some of what's in both is me writing about things for others' benefit (and my own clarity). Some is notes and records for myself, done in public as a living experiment in transparency and in ways to organize & relate things.
There are many ways to Contact me.
