I first encountered Zen many years ago in a forgotten field in southern Ohio; nobody was around. I pursued real magic by obtaining a PhD in Physics, simultaneously hoping to see things as they really are. I started sitting meditation about 20 years ago, encountered Pacific Zen Institute in 2002 and recognized members of my tribe. My current threads of interest include the relationship of science (knowing) to Chan/Zen (not knowing), embodying koans, metaphorical strange loops, ravens, and wilderness. In my spare time I enjoy falling in love.
