Lotus Press and No War No More grew out of the
ideas and hopes of a few activists in the Mahoning Valley in Ohio. The
philosophy of our press is rooted in a Buddhist, environmentalist and
social consciousness. No War No More, A Collection of Poems,
Essays, Photos and Artwork for Peace, has finally been
published. Doug Fowler, Diana Ludwig and Arya Jenkins worked
on this project for some time. Thanks to Doug's fastidiousness
and Diana's talents with layout, this project finally came to
fruition. NWNM contains work by Doug, Diana, and Arya, as well
as Pauline Beck, Donna Brennan, J. D. Curtis, Jim Jordan, Staughton
Lynd, Tenzin Palmo, Richard Pirko, Teresa Saska and Bob
Proceeds from sales of the
book will benefit the Dongyu Gatsal Ling Nunnery Project in
northern India. The nunnery, which was started by Tenzin
Palmo, educates nuns in the Kagyu lineage. Some of those nuns
will return to their communities as counselors and teachers. More
information about Tenzin Palmo's project can be found

of visual interpretations, although sometimes, as in the case of the
national elections, there will be accompanying text. It invites not
only your attendance to key issues, but your voice and your
participation in the conversation of those who wish not only to better
and enlighten the planet, but to enlighten themselves."

bibliophiliac, who spelunks, rollerbades, picks up red efts,
wintergreen berries, ox-eye daisies, x-c skiis, talks to barn
owls, watches birds, foxes, antelopes, butterflies,
toads, praying mantises... snowdrops along the Clarion and bald eagles
over, foxgloves down the Belltown way, scrumbles around, planting,
drawing, hiking, bogging, botanizing, stargazing, snowshoing, herbing,
looking for bats & salamanders, backpacking and camping. When

art, takes hours-long cyanotype photos, & plays with cats.
