I also am a little disappointed in the number of visitors to these pages so don't know if I will even continue making entries. the purpose of this blog was to see if there was any interest in A Few Acres of Snow and I believe I have an answer to said question. At any rate, I believe the whole project will benefit from a summer hiatus.
To those of you who have been visiting, thanks for looking. Have a wonderful summer.
Update August 24, 2014
A theme which came out of the writing to this point, emptiness/sunyata, will, I believe, serve to give more substance to the spiritual aspect of the book as well as be the glue which holds it all together. I have begun researching the matter in earnest both from a buddhist and quantum mechanics perspective and am rediscovering some of the excitement I had when I began this project.
