Welcome to Tumtum

This is Tom Unger's personal web site. The content of this web site has not kept up with what I'm actually doing. I'm a Buddhist and study Dharma at the Seattle Kadampa Meditation Temple. In 2010 Marie and I started taking care of cats in various ways. We are writing about that in the cat blog.

Tumtum is a Chinook Jargon term meaning "from the pulsations of the heart", or "the heart, the will, the mind." Chinook Jargon was a simplified language comprised of words from English, French, and numerous languages belonging to Native people in the Northwest region of the North American continent. The Jargon was used widely in this region for basic communication and trading purposes and was most common during the 19th century.
