A nice Memorial Day Weekend gift ... Alanna and Mike came to sit this morning. Alanna has been several times before, but Mike I have only 'known' on the internet. Always fun to meet in person someone you have imagined from afar ... and then be corrected. I like that.
It was especially nice, as we sat in a kind of triangular 'circle' to have Mike mention his shikantaza and mu practice and to have Alanna ask for some elucidation... and just to hear the two of them talk about a subject Alanna had read about and Mike was practicing.
There is so much stuff I forget until someone mentions it.
The morning passed nicely and helped to smooth some of the rough edges of what happened at my son's track meet yesterday ... something I still haven't got my head around and wish I could. The zazen helped.
