    Ordinary Mind I really enjoy Tricycle. I love the intellectual awareness that the articles demand of me. I am always thrilled when Tricycle comes in the mail and always learn there is hope for my path, however vague or cluttered it may become. The dharma is truth—that much I know. I am wondering whether others are out there too. I am a poor Buddhist, live a simple life and try to pay my bills. I’d like Tricycle to include me in your magazine—stories about regular folks out there working away and trying to follow the path. The Ph.D.s stimulate my intellect, but I could use a hero or two!! Thanks for listening. Jane Hilton Tucson, Arizona Bad Company More »

    PRACTICING FAITH I have no qualms about Mr. Batchelor's agnosticism regarding reincarnation. His beliefs are quite reasonable. However, when he states that "an agnostic position toward death seems more compatible with an authentic spiritual attitude," I wonder where he acquired the copyright to the "authentic spiritual attitude."

    All Fired Up Regarding the Summer 1998 issue, thank you very much for your elegant presentation of my poem “No” in “Seeing Red: Practicing with Anger” from my chapbook Fuck You, Cancer & Other Poems. But I am so angry, so pissed at the sloppy typo that marred the poem and my pleasure of seeing it in your pages. Line 24 in your version read “You don’t couch me.” In fact, and in my chapbook, the line reads “You don’t touch me.” What were you thinking, or not thinking? Did you rely on spell check for the final proof? Mindfulness indeed. Rick Fields Berkeley, California Gerald Grow e-mail More »

    TAKEN TO TASK I had thought one of the commitments of Tricycle was to document and extend the presence of women in Buddhism. Of the ten feature articles in your third issue, only one, the editor's piece on abortion, has anything to do with women. Granted, Buddhism is a male tradition. At this rate, I don't see that Tricycle is doing its part to alter that fact. LISE WElL Montreal, Quebec More »

    MERTON NUTT From Spalding Gray's interview with the Dalai Lama to Philip Glass and Khyentse Rinpoche, I have come to eagerly anticipate Tricycle's excellent interviews. But Harold Talbott on Thomas Merton is the very best yet! As something of a Merton nut, I am familiar enough with the growing body of material on Merton to know that much of it is repetitious and pious. How refreshing then to have Talbott's fearless descriptions of Merton the man and Merton the monk. And to read them with the rare luxury of knowing that for a change, a beloved hero has met up with a trustworthy raconteur. Thank you Harold Talbott! ANGELA DEVORE Providence, Rhode Island More »
