Pre-order ‘End of the Rainbow’..

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 […]

A work in progress

I remember on the road last year with Boss, in Vietnam, that we got a copy somehow of a short book by Hemingway called A Moveable Feast. Aside from the chauvinism and racism inherent in all things Hemingway, there was some really great dialogue. And a scene where Fitzgerald and Hemingway are in a room […]

20 Years

It’s going to be 20 years, next year, since the events of my first book, The Elopement. Which, surprising everyone (especially me), got some actual press and accolades the very week it was launched on the internet. I know that’s an unusual thing to happen, but in those days (eight years ago) I was in […]

A new chapter. (Again).

This is fun. I have just gotten the green light on a thing, and I’m going to move forward with it. In the morning. Today I’m just gathering things, getting ready for it. The things, to come. Can’t wait to get started, but also, relishing this particular moment of in-between. Here I am, wrapping a […]

‘Then what you are undergoes a transformation’

This is an update to an earlier note to myself, about one of the things I’d found and read that had moved me, quite, in 2017. The book was a gift. It came from a guest at one of our events in London, 2016. I had no idea, at the time, just how important it […]

Of two philosophies

Of two philosophies

I got into a long-winded conversation yesterday afternoon that turned into a two-minute, tight summary this morning about the topic of ‘letting it flow,’ versus designing structures for things so that stuff actually happens in a way that’s semi-intentional. I mean, I’m not all about the boxes and making stuff go into the boxes, or […]

  I’m writing a new story and this popped into it. This song! This film. Who remembers? Gosh… 1981. मेरे नसीब में तू है क्या तेरे नसीब में मैं हूँ कौन नहीं

Yesterday in S P C, I re-published one of my favorite issues. It’s the one that inspired lots and lots of new thinking, because it was a conversation that started in real life that led to a collaboration in the cloud. The cover illustration here is by Nils don Sihvola. ‘Digital visual arts–digital SLR and […]

S P C | The 10 best articles I’ve read since outbreak’s escalation, care to add or comment?..

[Editors note] OK. So this is a list-article I wrote, as I’ve been reading and discovering and learning and curating. Today, I am posting it in one of the emails that are going out to our virtual community, S P C. Reason I’m not just posting it wildly into the public sphere is because more […]

Link | 無爲

From Wikipedia… When you enlarge your mind and let go of it, When you relax your [qi 氣] vital breath and expand it, When your body is calm and unmoving: And you can maintain the One and discard the myriad disturbances. You will see profit and not be enticed by it, You will see harm […]

A new book | ‘Nostalgia Cà Phê’

This book is the result of half a dozen trips to Việt Nam, and the conversations that emerged when I was, or wasn’t, looking, and the composite feeling of being-there, and being-there in those moments, of quality connection, deep feeling, and exchanges that came because we were all in the right mood for it. Sometimes […]

Flight of Pisces

It’s a big day for me, here. I’ve been rewriting. A lot… Because what it is is… developing. A work in progress is like that. You don’t want to talk too much about it. You just want to let it become what it wants to become. I’m nearly there, all over again, with one of […]

Breakfast in Cambodia (2016)

Breakfast in Cambodia is a true story of disconnecting from life in a rich, Western country for one year on ‘the road’ in south and southeast Asia. Of landing in Phnom Penh, and reinventing a sense of self. What solitude, time, distance and quiet space can teach us about our innermost selves is the heart […]
