green copy

green beckons us.
green evokes life. 
green is a sanctuary.

Carbon manifests itself in green and humanity is a manifestation of carbon’s innate desire to organize itself at higher and higher levels of complexity. The story of green is interwoven in our DNA. We should listen to it. Especially now that so much green has been slashed and burnt by the poor struggling to grow enough food to stay alive. Ultimately, our addiction to cheap fossil fuels could turn green to grey. green is a collection of simple reflections about things that seize me like the forests, trees, lakes, rivers, mountains. and canyons in Colorado where I grew up and in Japan where I fell in love. A love of mystics permeates the collection along with quotes from Meister Eckhart, Hesse, Dogen Zenji, Socrates, LaoTzu, Kazantzakis, Socrates, Tagore, Buddha, Einstein, Leonardo Da Vinci, Rilke, Gandhi, the Dalai Lama, Anais Nin, T.S. Elliot, Teilhard de Chardin, Keats, and Simone Weil.
