With the release of our Fall 2011 issue and our e-book 20 Years, 20 Teachings—free to Supporting and Sustaining Members—Tricycle is celebrating 20 great years. Looking back, and looking forward, our feeling is one of overwhelming gratitude to our readers and supporters who have kept us pedaling all these years.

Not long ago we wrote to several friends of the magazine—teachers, writers, and practitioners—and asked them to speak about gratitude in their lives. We’ll post these on the blog over the next few weeks.

Earlier this week we featured contributing editor and bestselling author Mark Matousek. Today we continue with longtime Zen practitoner and now teacher, Dairyu Michael Wenger, who is now starting his own Zen temple! He sends the following contribution:
