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.

"I have mentioned that many people think that pursuing material happiness or riches is most important in life. But stand that way of life next to the reality of death and it completely falls apart. When a person thinks he is happy because of his material situation has to face death, he's likely to fall into despair. If happiness means having money and health, then by that very definition, you're going to hit rick bottom when it's your time to die. When you are faced with death, what good is being healthy or wealthy?-"Kosho Uchiyama Roshi
