Path With a Heart

Here's a 2,500 year old mantra I got from Jack Kornfield's book (another light in the dark):

May I be filled with loving kindness,
May I be well,
May I be peaceful and at ease,
May I be happy.

You say it constantly, as often as you remember, for a month. Just for yourself. After that, you say it for those you love and eventually, those you don't. After that, you say it for the world.

Hi, just came across your blog doing some research for an essay I'm writing about your books. I've read The Hunter's Moon to bits and pieces, and as I'm now allowed to write a "creative" essay for my Celtic Folklore class, I'm having some fun with it. So thanks for writing such amazing novels, and now that I know you're a blogger I'll check back often!

Hi there,

I was trying to reach your Bookmark blog but couldn't get through. I just get a blank page. Are the problems at your end, or is my computer doing stupid things again?

Thanks, Liv! Good luck with your paper. (I, too, get fed up reading and writing, writing and reading.)Keep on running!

And Erik, thanks for the heads up. You're right, Bookmark's gone! Must go look for it.
