Katie - What a beauty, O Juliette - what is her personality/"character"/her buddha family?


Just visited with Eleni's sweet Eva, my goddaughter- & Althea staying with me at 45th

Street a few days. She's doing fine, 19, going to a program in Argentina in August, & she

just finished a year at the California College of the Arts in Oakland.


Arrived here yesterday. Soon big Naropa doings. Quick trip to Wuhan China for a

conference July 18-30 Check out Naropa SWP schedule on line. Wish you were passing

thru!!! - Kerouac festival & alumni coming weekend of June 30-July 2 -


Hope all's well with the family...


I miss you




Katie -


So excited about the recent marriage - such sweet tender photos.


& Many Many happy returns to Juliette who looks like (those sharp penetrating eyes!)

she might save the world -


Just back from visiting Ambrose in SF - we’re working on a new CD together very

much fun - he’s  good. I really like his musical compositions most wholeheartedly.


Have you read Lady Diana’s Memoir? (just finished, made me nostalgic for the dharma

old days, have you any connection to the “scene” still?)


I go to Berlin, Austria, Greece Sept 6 (til Oct ) in a few days, then to NYC- & my

beloved husband Ed Bowes.


His new movie- “Against The Slope of Social Speech” starring Eleni is wonderful, a

meditation on death & everything else.  You would like it.


Nice party at Joe & Anne’s last weekend - like a homecoming - their children - Jake &

Flora - are marvelous.


I send love to you all






A photo from Ajanta caves (India) & from a Buddhist temple in Wuhan, China....

by the photos!


Hugs all around




Dear Katie - thank you for this beautiful photo - your boy looks so big! & for the other
