|Meditating at Keyes Point in Joshua Tree National Park, overlooking the Salton Sea|
Just a short update of what I have been doing since Christmas. In January there was an overnight excursion to Joshua Tree desert in Southern California with two old friends from Riverside.
On Feburary 15th I flew to Rio de Janeiro to stay untril April 6th to continue with preparing for the new stupa. I also made a five day visit to the Buddhist group in Belo Horizonte to lead a weekend retreat.
I will return to Riverside on April 6th for a short time before moving up to middle California and then Oregon.
