Another cojournal. Another set of conversations. One week at a time, over email, in very small circles of 3-4. More info >

Thanks for following this blog. There are a few people who have asked me to keep writing it, so here I am.

Additionally, these days I’ve been writing a monthly column. It’s called Kismuth & The Way II. If you know about this column and you know about Kismuth and you are reading here, thank you. I wanted to share this issue before it gets published next month, for some people who might enjoy it and want to get it first. Perhaps that’s you? Welcome.  I invite you to read ‘Pathways.’ It’s a short PDF, and it’s in the S P A C E shop. It’s $5.

Here is a link.

Writing is all rewriting, and so on, and so forth


For context, see this post at my personal site, too. I’ve been making the weekly e-mag S P A C E since 2017.

“When I sit down to write a book, I do not say to myself, ‘I am going to produce a work of art.’ I write it because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, and my initial concern is to get a hearing.”
—George Orwell


There is a lot to say about how one falls into a life of writing and the purpose of our writing, besides. I’ve shared my own “why” for writing this week in the zine, S P A C E. When we write, why do we write? This was the topic for the issue,  S P A C E | ‘Something to Write Home About.’ More about my zine is at the crowdfunding page for it, and also, in the shop.

Next from Kismuth’s collection of short books is Into the Quiet. It’s a curated collection of articles, and additional bits and pieces, on the subject of stilling, quieting, and finding comfort there.

Here’s a link.

It’s nice to be writing a column, Kismuth & The Way II, for Saathee Magazine. The first series ran for a time and then the pandemic hit. I resumed the column this year, to gather a few new pieces, mostly tiny vignettes about everyday life in Cambodia. Where I live. It’s a long story.

More about that, soon.

To more conversations of the shape that makes us feel more interconnected, then, for 2024! Happy New Year.
