Happy Heidimas

Being raised a Southern California beach boy, Christmas has never had quite the same primal pull for me as for most White Northerners, and this week's gorgeous, drought-stricken, California weather has only been a reminder of that essential cultural estrangement.

The only person I still know from high school days, Heidi, is a California beach girl who became a Tibetan Buddhist woman.

She had the (mis)fortune to be born on December 25th, so let us all dedicate tomorrow to her, when the Buddhas will be celebrating Heidimas.

Way to go Heidi -- lets give Christ a little bit of competition! He is SUCH a glory hog...

Thanks Michael for the No Fear Mudra Buddha and the due respect for my birthday. But I am just a simple So Cal girl and so I am off this beautiful X-mas morning for a beach walk with my sister. With love for all sentient beings,
