This blog is a living example of impermanence—as am I, in general.
I’ve had many different names over the years, and this blog has had a few different ones too; I’m sure it’ll have a few more, since “Salty Dharma” doesn’t really fit my current disposition.
I might eventually just find a simple, meaningless name for it and then stick with that. That’s the problem with meaningful names: as things change, the meanings don’t fit anymore. Now, a stupid, meaningless name—that has the potential to last.
Anyway, I’m a featured columnist & editor for the Tattooed Buddha, podcast host, poet, musician, composer, and self-published author. I practice Tsaotung Chan with the Morning Sky Zen hermitage, my Dharma name is Upasaka Jing Shen. I’m not currently offering personalized Dharma teachings, but I’m more than happy to be a Dharma friend to anyone.
