I often wonder about finding the right path for my life. I have wondered and wondered. I have studied and studied.
I once tried to study Christianity - for 18 years. I once tried to study from a teach who said he taught True Buddhism.
I have concluded that I am not a skilled student and that I lack the discipline for serious study. I no longer try to study.
Much of my time today I spend making dots. This is my first dot picture. I made it at Tony's grill in Iowa City, Iowa. The people there said they liked it so I gave it to them. It hangs on their wall.
I like toast better than my attempts to study religion. Toast tastes better and it is crunchy. I guess I am a better student of toast than I am of religion. Not so bad really. In the end we are all toast anyway. I hope that the eternal essence, God, Dharma, whatever will give me a little butter every now and then.
