About me

This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realise it is play. The only thing that is ultimately real about your journey is the step that you are taking at this moment. That’s all there ever is. I’m here to tell you that the path to peace is right there, when you want to get away. When you are present, you can allow the mind to be as it is without getting entangled in it. If you miss the present moment, you miss your appointment with life. That is very serious!

Along the Oxford Canal 1989

An old bridge over a stream in Oxfordshire, UK

Way back in 1989 I undertook a trip to England to visit my parents-in-law and on one of our trips to Oxfordshire (the old people dragged me all over the country, proudly showing off all the wonderful sites!), I painted this quiet scene while we had a picnic lunch next to the Oxford Canal.
