When Meredith first encountered Buddhism in the 1970s, a whole lot of things clicked into place. She learned to accept the moment for what it is, "in all it's rawness, ugliness, pain, pleasure." Meredith found that she had always known this as Meredith the Artist, but not as Meredith the Person. Buddhism allowed her to become whole, through all the twists and turns of a hard life pursuing art.
