Our dear friend and dharma sibling Loring Palmer, an early Suzuki student, is in hospice care. He's going with the flow, being grateful and ready. It's all been "Good in the beginning, good in the middle, and good at the end," as he says, borrowing from Buddha. If you want to send him a message, send it to dchad at cuke dot com and I'll forward it. Just did a long podcast with Loring recently. - dc
