Update, March 2014:
Hey everybody. After a long break I’m going to be blogging again. The posts will be of two types:
- Quick quotes
Articles will be published on Fridays at about 6am, US-west-coast time, every 1-4 weeks. The articles will explore some aspect of modern life or popular culture in the context of humankind’s spiritual wisdom and/or Not-Two Is Peace and/or The Mummery Book1.
“Quick quotes” will be short quotes that I find inspirational or provocative, married to one or more images. I’m not sure how often these will be. Last year I was doing this on Facebook, but a) I dislike FB, and b) I find that FB2 is not a reliable way to follow something, so if you want to get these be sure to subscribe to my mailing list (see sidebar at top where it says “subscribe”).
You should be able to specify which type of post you want to receive through your emails settings (see link at bottom of each email).
In my life one of the purposes of studying The Basket of Tolerance – and The Mummery Book for that matter – is to help purify myself of illusions and prejudices that keep me from seeing life clearly and participating in life whole-heartedly. This “dis-illusionment” process might be painful at times, or seem like a bummer, but it’s also pleasurable somehow – and certainly more so in the company of good people. :)
Originally, in the first couple years of its existence, this blog was called “Basket of Tolerance Quote of the Day”, but since the focus has changed, and since not every quote is from the BOT, I changed the title of the blog3 – to what was just the domain name… not exciting but it works. Also, I moved some material that was here to a separate page: About the Basket of Tolerance.
Thanks everyone for your support and your comments – your comments make the site more valuable for everyone who comes here. If you have a private question or comment please contact me.

- I noticed with FB that people signed up as “fans” of my FB fan page, but then over time, they stopped seeing the material I posted if they did not click “like” often enough. In other words, the more my fan-base grew, the more my readership shrank. Hmm, that’s no good..! ↩
