Had a great day at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books today. There was an amazing turn out.

To help at this each year is something I look forward to. The privilege of discussing Buddhism with people who are interested, and often just beginning as I was years ago is wonderful. Being able to relate to them, to offer what I can to assist in whatever questions they have about the temple, about the books, and of course, about Buddhism makes for such an amazing day.

Tomorrow I am taking Little Man to the festival so we can enjoy looking at books for him. Even though he has shelves full of books, I hope to bring more home for him — a child can never have too many books.
