Zen practice, I've learned, is being totally oneself. I've been practicing since about 2010 but I feel like it has been my whole life. I've been studying under Nancy Mujo Baker Roshi's guidance and am her dharma holder.
I am also a photographer and have been working on a small town newspaper for more than two decades. Being intimately involved in the community like that can be a deep practice. Most of the photos on this blog are from my job.
