I'm sure I wasn't ten yet when my hippie father handed me his dog-eared copy of Siddhartha; I've lost track of how many times I've read it since. Images remain with me: a child losing their innocence in the face of the world's pain and suffering, a youth flirting first with self denial, then reaching for success in business and love, then an older Siddhartha who finds meaning in service and reading the river. These images remain part of my inner landscape; invite them into yours.
