a new life

My life has completely turned upside down since August. My husband and I have purchased a big new house, part of which we are using as our home and most of which is devoted to use for our Zen community. Boundless Way Temple is an exciting place to live -- so much energy and creativity coming from the sangha, and such promise for the unfolding of American Zen.

And -- practicing impermanence is definitely on the menu! Having left my old home, I find myself waking each morning as if on a journey. I don't know where to find the simplest things, all my old routines are gone, and every moment brings a new mood, sometimes confusion, sometimes deep gratitude, and on and on...

What an amazing new life!
