Join me and a few others in the Kismuth and S P A C E online conversation spaces for the new 12-week ‘MIRROR’ project. Reflection and writing. Together, in online forums and over email 1:1 with me.

How did this topic arise? I’m a fan of the Open Space method, which gets people together to talk about things that interest them.

Some titles from the last ten years that pop to mind as I reminisce on this include: Gather: What does it mean to have Community, Origin: ‘What is fromness?’, Rooftop Philosophy in Phnom Penh, Beauty: What is it? Who gets to decide?, Aether: Is the Medium Still the Message?, and you see what I mean? Quite esoteric, but it gets real and cool when we make time to show up, and talk, together, about what it is that intrigues and invites those who might not know one another to discover together on a theme. Dialogue is that style that has a center and not sides, for me, when I host these things.

The one that I had held last week in virtual space was themed ‘A Change of Perspective.’ Through a series of fascinating exchanges, I got to see that there is an even more specific topic we could zero in on. True to Open Space style, I’ve allocated another spot to dive deeper into this topic. It is ‘A World Apart.’

Asing questions: An online reflection space for the very curious

Some of us are far, far away from what we thought we knew, and are on the road ‘indefinitely.’ In these places, on these journeys, we meet and talk. Sometimes we share. I’m looing forward to the next set of online conversations for this series, and I invite you to be part of the Cojournal, ‘A World Apart,’ if you are interested in engaging with us in a written way. That’s also a way to discover, and co-discover, what we don’t know.

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.

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.

End of the Rainbow (2020)

My first book, The Elopement, was about running off to Ireland to get married. Kind of. I didn’t mean to run off, and I didn’t mean to get married. Lots of things happen in the course of, well, youth. Next year marks the 20-year anniversary of the events in that book’s main story, and I wanted to write a follow-up one. Its working title is End of the Rainbow.
