Taking no prisoners. Including herself.

Dear Online Friends,

Admit it: you probably won’t get what you want for Christmas this year. Or, maybe you just can’t seem to find that perfect gift for someone you love. I have the answer!

I am selling / giving away a bunch of my stuff in order to head back to Vietnam in the new year to write, meditate, teach. I need to get rid of most of this stuff, but a little extra money toward plane tickets wouldn’t be so bad either. So here’s the deal: you can take anything you like, just make a donation as you see fit. Otherwise — take, take!

Some of the things I’m purging are:

* Widescreen, baby: iMac 20-inch 2.0 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo 1GB memory 250GB hard drive comes w/ MS Office Logic Pro+ 40Gigs of music (asking $850 – obo)
* Mac computing on the go! White iBook 17-inch laptop 2.0 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo with lots of apps (would like to get *something* for this guy too)
* Watch all your old childhood videos for Xmas: 12″ Panasonic TV+videotape player
* Become a videographer in the new year: Sony Handycam – EXCELLENT condition (used only once) with case and mini-DVs
* Furniture: red velour armchair, bookcase, dark wood entertainment stand, wood kitchen chopping block on wheels, more!
* CDs of Poe, Portishead, The Police, and even artists starting with other letters of the alphabet!
* DVDs (Burning Man documentaries, Henry Rollins, others)
* Goldtouch ergonomic keyboard & Logitech trackball
* Jewelry from Bangkok, Turkey, Israel, more!
* Clothes (sizes 4-8) & shoes (size 7, 7/12)
* …& more!

You never know what you’ll find that you never knew you needed!

* Set of three framed pictures of Chinese poet Lao Tzu!
* A perfectly good 16oz nailing hammer!
* Tabebuia impetiginosa (Pau D’arco Bark) oil!
* A white resin old fashion wick Buddha lighter!
* A universal converter to New Zealand outlets!
* A 2-year collection of Zyzzyva literary journals!
* A complete unused workbook of “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People“! (Um…)

Come on by if you’re in Sonoma County for your holiday travels, otherwise let me know if something caught your eye or you are looking for anything specific. I’ll even ship to any address! (cost shipping not included…)

Consider it an act of charity: you are helping me practice non-attachment. Cheers!

Lots of love and holiday wishes,
