About

Fly Like a Crow is my space for everything me. I formerly blogged at Home Brew Dharma, focusing on Buddhism only. For a short while, I tried keeping up two blogs so I could blog on a variety of topics, but that just never really worked out. I felt a bit trapped by my previous blogging experience, and felt a need to distance myself from equating my identity with home brewing (a hobby I enjoy, but just a hobby and only a tiny part of what makes me, me).  Thus Fly Like a Crow was born as an organic,  and more authentic place to put all of those things that are an integral part of my life.

The name for this blog comes from my son, Corbin. At about 12 months old, he started pretending to “fly like a crow”, and that was one of his first toddler-sentences. Every child dreams of flying, mine just wanted to do it like a crow.

  3. Hi Adam,
    I just noticed the new format, and wanted to say that it looks really great. It has a very peaceful, grounded feel to it.

  4. Adam,
    Thanks for taking the time to post a comment to my Blog. I have been looking at your websites today – they are wonderful. Thank you for your contribution to the Dharma.

  5. Hi Adam,
    I’m Sofan Chan a Buddhist painter and I came across your very informative and helpful website and I was wondering if you would like to use any of my Buddha paintings on your posts and articles or as a resource material. You will find them here, http://www.theartofhappiness.net/buddha-paintings.htm

    If you do decide to use any of the photos of my paintings, please just put a small credit on my behalf. You could link the image back to my site, http://www.theartofhappiness.net/buddha-paintings.htm or whatever credit you like to put.

    Thank you for your time and I am hoping for your positive response.

  6. Hi there, Adam, and “Sawasdee Kha” as we say in my home country of Thailand.

    I didn’t see a way to email you directly, so I hope you don’t mind that I am leaving a reply on your blog instead. I hope you will understand.

    This is Srisuda Hongthai from http://www.thebuddhagarden.com/ and I wanted you to know that we are conducting a survey on Buddhism in America in the ten years since the 9/11 Tragedies, since many people found solace in the teachings of Buddhism after 9/11. The survey is at:

    http://www.thebuddhagarden.com/911survey/

    Wouldn’t it be great to know why so many people become interested in Buddhism after the 9/11 attacks? Does Buddhism still play a role in their lives ten years after the attacks? How do the attitudes of new Buddhists differ from those who were Buddhists before 9/11?

    No matter how long you have been interested in Buddhism, we encourage you to take this survey yourself.

    We also kindly ask that you will join other webmasters like you by telling your readers about the survey and encouraging them to take it as well. You would be doing a great service to the Dharma community.

    Will you kindly let us know if you will be joining hundreds of like-minded bloggers and webmasters by linking to the survey, or mentioning it on FaceBook or Twitter?

    Thank you, and Sawasdee Kha,

    Srisuda Hongthai
