This blog is an interpretation of the Tao te Ching "Tao Virtue Book" which is attributed to Laozi "Lao Tze" a Chinese philosopher who lived circa 600 b.c.

Please remember always that this is the description of the Tao and not the experience of the living Tao. Hopefully, this blog will not serve as analysis or commentary but as a window into the Tao. You are encouraged to disagree with this interpretation, involve yourself in self-study, and ultimately leave all concepts behind and so experience the living Tao.

About Me

I'm a Topeka based writer and artist.  I like a clear mind and a good joke. I study Taoism, Buddhism, and any bizarre thing my teenage daughter says.

I am not a master scholar by any means but, if you have a question about anything I post, feel free to contact me at  If I don't know the answer maybe I can find a resource for you.

I am working to build a little revenue from blogging.  If I've written something useful to you, do be kind and click a link on one of my pages.  It's free to you and gives me a little thrill and a few cents.

Thanks so much.
