These links will take you to friends, associates, and organizations that might be of interest. Joan Anderson is my wife and interlocutor. Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado USA is where I taught for twenty-five years. Buddhist Geeks is a website with a large, easily accessed library of audio programs and interviews with contemporary Buddhist teachers and commentators. (I appear in several episodes: in one I'm interviewed by Vince Horn; another is a conversation with the late and venerable John Daido Loori, abbot of Zen Mountain Monastery in Tremper, NY.) The New York Times links you to an article about Naropa University in which I appear. Art & Soul Gallery represents my work in Boulder. Food on the Food is a food blog unlike any other. Linda Fleming is an artist, teacher and old friend, as is her husband Michael S. Moore. Mike Tracy is an artist and teacher in California who draws prolifically. The Awakened Eye website and blog is an excellent repository of art, musings, and guidance for creative people. I recommend Claire Dederer's best selling book Poser; it's a wise, humorous, and highly readable memoir; I make a brief and funny appearance in the book. Also, there was another painter named Robert Spellman. He had an studio and art gallery in Des Moines, Iowa (USA.) He and I exchanged some messages but we never met in person. He died at the age of 36 in 2017. I don't believe we are related; but do visit his website.
