As the years have passed and the sky of spirituality grown vaster, I welcome a sense of place more than ever. For me, Cape Cod offers that sense and I'm blessed to be here. Arlene and I have been here almost continuously for several months, relaxing, working, writing, meditating and watching the weather change. For the first time, we traveled to teach our European students (see picture...) from Boston instead of from our usual jumping-off place, Newark. It was a blessing to return to the Outer Cape after the intensity of travel and teaching. Our spirits were re-freshed returning to a place where the air is constantly on the move, pushed by the sea, over the narrow spit of land. I'm reminded of a Zen koan: A student goes to visit his teacher who is lying ill. "How are you?" asks the student. "Sun-faced Buddha, Moon-faced Buddha," answered the teacher. This koan has many, many levels, but one of the easiest and most accessible is the fact that "every day is a good day." Sun-faced Buddhas live for many ages. Moon-faced Buddhas live only for an evening. "Its all ok," is what the teacher is saying on this level. Not to make too fine a point on it, that's what the weather is like here on the Cape for me. Downpours, drizzle, shining sun in pristine blue skies, hot days, cool days, cloudy days when the sun has not even been invented yet...Sun-faced, moon-faced: all good. I look forward to writing to all of you again soon. Pass the word: Delight in life is possible...

I live part of the year on Cape Cod, a pennisular that juts out into the Atlantic from the commonweath of Massachusettes. Out here, the sea is never far away: At points the Cape is only a mile or so wide between bay and sea, and when we get thunderstorms, both the bay and the sea light up with split-second flashes of lightening hitting the sea leaving sound and darkness behind. This week my daughter and my nearly two-year old grandson are up to visit. Walking in town, the first drops of rain from this storm began to fall and is often the case in warm-day summer storms, people did not run or hurry that much, but let the rain hit them and wet them. As the first part of the storm passed, everything  glowed in the muted light and my grandson played and pointed to the boats in the harbor. Quite a day.

Here is a song I came across the other day, recorded at Electric Lady Studios in Greenwich Village, NYC, in 1970. Gil Roeder on bass, Artie Steinman on guitar, Billy Mintz on drums and Jason on recorder and vocals. This was a thrilling day: we were recording in Jimi Hendrix's studio and we felt like we were stars in the making. Of course, I took another path!
