    Hands clasped
    Hearts a fire
    No more waiting
    Only beginnings
    This throne, this family
    this world of curious possibilities.
    -an offering in celebration of this Year of the Fire Monkey

    “Whatever comes out of the mind,
    Regard not that as poetry.
    When the true poetry comes,
    No such question exists.”

    Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
    [from “The Victoria Memorial,” Mudra,1969]
