About this blog

The Buddhist poet Gary Snyder wrote that spiritual practice is not just about praying, meditating, worshipping and so forth. It is about everything you do: making breakfast, washing the dishes, doing the laundry, even playing baseball I suppose. As long as you do what you are doing with intention, it is all part of your spiritual practice.

Soulmailing is about spiritual practice as a day-to-day concern. It’s about the challenges of everyday life, and the experience of life over the long haul, framed as a spiritual journey. I will not say it’s spiritual but not religious, because religion is part of it. So is music. And literature. And running. And baseball. And family. And love. All mean a great deal to me, so all are part of my daily practice.

And all find their way into this blog, because writing is how I express myself the best. I hope in these writings you find something of yourself, as well.

    Thanks for the good article on Bishop Walkowiak. Loved your paragraph on Hurley. We all hope Walkowiak will bring a more pastoral tone than the disaster who preceded him. He has yet to “get out” and meet the people. Too low keyed for me. Many issues have to be addressed and he shouldn’t have a problem with Francis leading the way. We’ll see.

      Thanks for your thoughts, Greg. Walkowiak’s appreciation for baseball and ArtPrize give me hope that he is a “regular guy.” But, as you say, we’ll see.
      Hope life is going well for you.
