I have not posted for some time. I am doing fine in retirement, very active and engaged. I still do my Zen practice. My interests over the last years have shifted in science however. I find myself less interested in much of the material that I wrote about here, though I still will occasionally read this or that. I have been more and more involved with environmental issues and politics regarding to learn and volunteer with the goal to create a more compassionate and sustainable world. The recent supreme court decisions have certainly convinced me I have been going in the right direction to work for this. I will soon be starting a website on environmental and sustainability issues. For now I will keep this website up and announce when the other is open.
