Think back to the last time you had a picnic on the grass, a stroll on the beach, a ramble through the woods, a walk in the park.

For 35 years I was a member of Radha Soami Satsang Beas (RSSB), a religious organization with headquarters in India. Back then I believed that RSSB taught a semi-scientific approach of uniting one's personal consciousness, soul, with universal consciousness, God....

I've written four books. My advice to people who want to ask an author, "How are your book sales going?," is the same advice I'd give to someone who wants to ask a woman how much she weighs. Don't do...

Mindfulness has been my meditation for quite a few years. As I wrote about recently, being mindful of what actually exists here and now strikes me as way preferable to fantasizing about supernatural realms and mystical mumbo-jumbo. Thought I'm not...

Here's Part 2 of Osho Robbins' (not his real name) tale of what happened to him at a meeting of Radha Soami Satsang Beas devotees at the RSSB Haynes Park center in England. Part 1 can be read in "Osho...

Here's a new Open Thread. I appreciate that off-topic comments have been going in a previous Open Thread. As noted before, it's good to have comments in a regular blog post related to its subject, and it's also good to...

It was good to see the Salem City Council vote unanimously last night to reject an appeal of the 14.1 acre, 16 lot Fairview Woods development. Eric Olsen of Olsen Design & Development has been working on this project for...

Two months ago it was waterfalls, wildlife, caves and sand dunes that were captivating Rob and Chris Taylor and their family as they road tripped through Southern Oregon. This time around, it was the science and history, color-drenched landscapes, and starry skies of the Painted Hills in Eastern Oregon that brought wonde

So you just booked that dream camping trip with extended family in Oregon’s wilderness. Moment of truth: How do you coordinate all of the gear? From tents and sleeping bags to food, lanterns, rain tarps and cooking utensils, it’s often an elaborate endeavor to sort out who’s bringing what gear so you can enjoy Oreg

I'm already a big fan of the electric car VW revealed today at the Frankfurt auto show. Only problem, every report I've seen says that the ID3 won't be sold in the United States, because we Americans aren't big on...

Today, Central Oregon’s maker scene goes far beyond the remarkable beverages that so many know, and a new video series aims to highlight the folks behind it. Here are snapshots of a few craftspeople harnessing their passions to bring wonderful sounds and flavors to the state. The post

It’s no secret that Bend is as close to a modern, grown-up summer camp as a town can get: World-class mountain biking, the birthplace of sport climbing, sapphire lakes set against snow-capped peaks, a culinary scene to match the legendary craft breweries, and a trout-laden river running through it all.

Having been a strict vegetarian since 1970, I've enjoyed almost fifty years of dietary self-satisfaction. (Vegetarians aren't as smug as vegans, but we're close.) So when I saw a Politico headline today, "Democrats bite on burgers and straws -- and...

I've been car window-shopping recently. OK, not via a window, really, but through the Internet. Just when I thought I'd hold onto my 2017 VW GTI for a while, until the next-generation Mk8 Golf/GTI comes to the United States in...
