Sedona sunset: This is the view during my weekly drive to Sedona. Our center (@ikrcgrandcanyon) hosts a branch course on various issues designed to reduce our suffering and the suffering of others. I invite you to join me if you're ever out this way.

Broken camera? No bother. Just pick up an old film cam and play tourist in Scotland for a few days!

I love to explore and connect with whomever I happen to meet. Yesterday, it was Javier tending his flock of hundreds on the open praries of the Kaibab.

I always request a window seat and find myself glued to the unfolding show below. Earlier this month I saw Greenland and its massive icebergs in the surrounding sea.

12,500 miles this month will end today back with my beautiful AZ fam @ikrcgrandcanyon. Many lessons to share, but the one coming to mind is that wherever I go, there I am. Changing circumstances don't seem to have a lasting effect for me unless I tie it to some sort of internal development I can carry with me and share with others. Here, I watched an artist @manjushrikmc in Ulverston, England create the Buddhist figure Je Tsongkapa bound for our emerging temple in AZ.

Travel's always a spiritual experience for me. Each moment seems new, without script. This trip is more obviously so as I end up at a Buddhist meditation festival. First stop, Iceland for a few days with a good buddy.

Small town politics | Puppies, Parades, Patriotism. I love small town celebrations for the way they bring community together and seem a trip into the past. In Parks, AZ, locals lined up hours before the parade which passed the gas station, general store and schoolhouse. The day began with an annual pancake breakfast in the school gym and a raffle to win a Winchester rifle. A spectator in full rodeo clown make-up strolled the parade route demanding cowboys remove their 'lids' when the national anthem played. I purchased blue ribbon winning marmalade and salsa from the roadside farmer's market while my friend went for the goat's milk lotion. I don't know Rob, but in a small town I'd say his campaign strategy is on-point.

Toiling in the summer heat, an oft unnoticed community tends to our urbanscape. Today I am contemplating interdependence, the idea that to be sitting where I am, in the way I am, millions of people contributed in some small way. Thank you.
