  1. Hello Gary,

    First visit, first acquaintance. Your archives are such a rich source of information and good thought, I wait with interest to see what this new venture/pages will bring. Wishing you every success, and that your pages continue to ripple outward and enlighten and delight those ahead of us whom we will never meet.

    I Dream the Children

    I dream the children yet unborn
    that see the bloom I will not see,
    and plant what seeds I have at hand,
    word-watered that they might be spared
    though brief my life and faint the drum
    that conjures up mortality.

    There’s little else life ought,
    a moment here or there, a thought
    against the time they might emerge
    to wonder if we ever knew
    how much was said but never heard,
    as though the dream would make it so.

  2. Hello Gary,

    I’m reading your book, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Buddhism, now and I found two errors on page 49. The page says, “Mention might be made, too, of Mani (210-276), who synthesized Buddhist, Christian, Muslim, and Zoroastrian doctrines in what became known as Manicheasm.” Muslim shouldn’t be in that sentence because Islam was founded over three centuries after Manichaeism was founded, and Manicheasm should be spelled Manichaeism. Other than that, I think everything else is good.
