Monastic Mom


In my midforties I think I finally know what I want to do when I grow up - Join a Buddhist monastery.  But as a divorced mom of two kids, I can't run off to a monastery just yet.  So I've decided to try to be as monastic in my life now as possible while raising my children who are far from monastic.  I hope to share my thoughts and stumblings along the way.  The following rambling thought do not necessarily reflect the teachings of any particular Buddhist sect nor Buddhism in general, but are my own spin on dealing with life, family, and Dharma.
