Peace – by any other name – is peace.

Shalom. Peace. Al-Salam.

I took this photo in Brooklyn, New York, in September 2001.

Peace, by any other name, is still peace.

God, by any other name, is still God.


Today I head for the travel zone, first leg of the pilgrimage home to Chicago for Christmas.

It can be a challenge to infuse ‘peace/shalom/salam’ into the whirlwind of holiday travel.

And it is the most important thing to carry.

The inner awareness of resting in that peace, whatever the outer circumstances.


Peace be with you, my friends.
