Hello. My name is Rob. I like to practice Zen, write haiku, share quotes, take pictures, make coffee, and drink coffee. May this site be dedicated to sharing these interests.

“This is the irony of spiritual practice. We travel far and wide, scraping and clawing our way to some meditation center, temple, or mountain cabin; and then, once there, pray for it to end as quickly as possible so we can go home and relax. When the class is over, we hurry home to our comfort zone, where we can safely wish to be practicing again. No matter where we are, we are always wishing we were somewhere else. What we forget is that we can only be where we are.”-Jane Dobisz
