HERON LAKE SP, NM—Two weeks ago, Ellen Fox dropped by. She’s a psychotherapist and Zen student, so like a good Zen practice we just sat and gazed out over the water, then went for a walk (Zen practice is famous for sitting in zazen then getting up for some mindful walking (usually in slow circles)).
Last week, Andrea Eagles asked me to stop by. She was a long-time student of spiritual guru Andrew Cohen. Even though there are a lot of online rumors that Cohen is quite abusive to his students, Andrea says she never experienced or saw any of this and had nothing but good things to say about him.
Sunday, Boonie showed up and made camp for a night. Though I follow his blog, it was the first time we’ve met. We discussed rig design and human nature (now I understand what Morrissette meant by calling him a “consummate lady’s man“). Contrary to the way he sometimes comes across on his blog though, he’s actually a pretty nice guy.
Three unexpected visitors in three weeks. That’s gotta be some kind of record for me.
