Keith Kumasen Abbott teaches writing and art at Naropa University. He has published several novels, many short stories, several poetry collections, memoirs of Richard Brautigan and Ken Kesey, and a number of pieces on writing. His art has appeared in both the Lion's Roar and Buddhadharma magazines and in group and solo shows in San Francisco, Denver, Boulder, Shanghai, Seoul, and San Antonio. It is offered here in print form.
Keith Abbott’s work is contemporary with an ancient feel. So this sumi ink drawing with his personal seal made a perfect opening illustration for Norman Fischer’s piece, “Applied Dharma”—about Zen coming to the West and adapting to life here. This piece has a spontaneous, on-the-spot feel but it is clearly Zen, which expresses exactly the spirit of the ancient tradition of Zen manifesting freshly in the West. –Liza Matthews
