The Contemporary Taoist Monthly Print Column!
How cool is that? Special thanks to LivingNow’s editing team Elizabeth, Terry and Madeleine for giving me a go.
This month's article, 'The Tao of Cats and Dogs', is actually the first in the ongoing series, but somebody forgot to stick the general Contemporary Taoist title on it. But never mind - I AM STOKED!*
Go to the website to find out where you can pick up the new May issue. If you don't live in one of the major centres of VIC, NSW, QLD, OR WA (Australian states) you can get it posted to you each month for a very cheap price. I presume this goes for overseas as well.
Needless to say I am quite happy with my lot at the moment. I have had a number of pots on the stove for some time, and despite the odd stretch where my cook-top flames have died down some, little bubbles are now starting to form. Over the next year you will see some significant output: books (I have written one and I am working on two more), new (better) music recordings and more frequent live shows, meditation and personal development classes (starting again in July for those in Melbourne), and some other wacky projects that I don't feel ready to mention yet.
Also my web presence will be getting a thorough shaking up, including the introduction of www.thecontemporarytaoist.com - a proper website companion to this blog. Amongst other exciting things this will include some of the best TCT Blog posts and hopefully the older LivingNow magazine columns (the ones that are no longer currently in print).
For those that live in Melbourne, tomorrow I am doing a radio interview at 7pm - 7:30pm on Southern FM.
In closing - something odd happened this evening, I received an email FROM MYSELF THAT I SENT ONE YEAR AGO! It was sent via a website called FutureMe.org. I had completely forgotten about it. It read:
'Dear Future Me,
One year ago you were sitting around wasting time - what are you up to now?
I am very glad to report that I am definitely not wasting time - and neither am I stressing out. I hope you are making the most of your time my friend, but if you ever feel that it is all too much, take a deep breath and...
