    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 »

    Letters to the Editor Fall 2004 Paid Member

    Karmic GraceThe riddle of desire was poignantly unraveled in Joan Duncan Oliver's essay, "A Drink and a Man" {Summer 2004}. The way she expressed herself brought me right into the experience of her "karmic grace"—when the excruciating pain of addiction and potential for liberation came together. Her essay revealed the essence of the dharma, and I hope to read more from her. —Alix Engel, Palm Beach Gardens, Florida The Problem with Puritans More »
