Portrait of an American Daoist

Me with Bamboo Me with Bamboo

I wrote this essay for the first additions of The Journal of Daoist Studies.  I recommend you buy the journal.  However, in our world everything is free if you are willing to put up with a few ads.  You can read the full article here. I clicked on the download button because I wanted to know if someone could possibly be making any money on the article I wrote, it then asked me to log-in through Facebook--is that scary?

Anyway if you like the article and you want to prod me to come down from the mountain more often and write blog posts, feel free to scroll down the sidebar and hit the donate button!  Or you can come visit me in lovely Lafayette California (where I just moved) and challenge me to a duel.
