Because I got an email from a fellow who said he and his wife were coming to do zazen this morning, I went out to the zendo last night and, for the first time this year, turned on the heat. It's nippy and the zendo is not much protection from the cold.
I also cleaned the altar and its statues, cleaned the incense burner, cleaned the cushions and cleaned the floor.
So even if the visiting teachers do not show up, still I will sit down in a clean and relatively warm place this morning.
I sit out on the back deck in the sun, feeding the birds, which eat from my hand thinking, "Bird, is this a warm hand-shaped feeder." The other hand holds water, and they say, "Ding! A hot tub! Wit cushions!"ReplyDelete
