Krishnamurti Wisdom in a Blog Format

In the last week I've pored over two Krishnamurti texts: Freedom from the Known, the 1969 classic, and As One Is, transcriptions of his 1955 talks in an Ojai, California oak grove.

He has a lot to say not only on the focusing-without-focusing of the mind, but the banality of what we've come to think of as "art" and "poetry."

Along with several other great articles from The New Criterion and others, I've published my newest blog on Fringe Magazine.

A new post at Fringe Magazine: How to spot the "ravishing nonsense" in today's wonderful, wonderful award-winning and easily quantifiable poetry (Post-avant? SoQ?). Topic to consider: A.E. Housman vs. T.S. Eliot. Which one is Post? Which one School? And does any of this matter in 2009?!

New news feed from All Voices

By invitation, I have begun writing for . You can see my first posting here.

I am a Daddy-in-Waiting: the Slideshow

My good friend Doug always told me, "If you want to change your life, have a baby." So that's what Erynn and I did. After a particularly vivid display on the sonogram, out baby's one-and-only name is "Wiggles." Look, you'll know what I mean when you have one...until then, just wait.
My wife did all the text on the photos. Happy New Year, all.

Happy New Year

And here's what I have to say about it all (IMHO) in my newest post for Fringe Magazine.
