Dear All,

Thanks, Tim, for the supportive response. You wrote, "Gotta start  
somewhere." I think that really expresses it. For me, one of the chief  
virtues of Buddhism is that the tradition has grown rich enough to  
meet people where they are. To some folks it provides three year  
silent retreats. For others, bathroom books. Some Buddhists are  
qualified to lead those retreats. I, by contrast, am qualified to  
write the bathroom books. And so I do. They don't teach high level  
practice, but they do attempt to add some wisdom and compassion to  
contexts and moments that might otherwise lack them. I'm grateful to  
be a shallow spot in a deep tradition. Nothin' wrong with that. (Or so  
I think.)

Since you asked, here's a tinyurl for my Amazon author page: <http://tinyurl.com/3lyob5h
