    ... and to be visible at the following link during those times and any time thereafter ...

    FOR THOSE NOT ALREADY MEMBERS OF THE CIRCLE WHO WISH TO JOIN TO SIT LIVE WITH A CAMERA, INSTRUCTIONS ARE POSTED AT THIS LINK. WE ARE NOW LIMITED TO 10 INDIVIDUALS WITH CAMERAS, BUT ANY NUMBER CAN WATCH LIVE 'ONE WAY' AND SIT-A-LONG VIA THE ABOVE SCREEN. IF JOINING WITH CAMERA, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR MICROPHONE IS MUTED:

    Will try to be there live again (don't have a webcam though), if I am still awake by then (it's in the middle of the night in my time zone).

    Don't overdo if not your natural waking time. The Zazenkai is intended to be sat in any time, any time zone, no difference. Don't get caught up in "live" or not.

    Variation on a famous Koan ...

    Zen master taps a computer screen with his stick and asks, "live or not? I won't say, I won't say."

    Thanks for your concern, Jundo!
    Actually, I am a nightowl, but since I haven't had much sleep lately there might be problems. Last weekend I was there "live" up to and including your speech, but I had to do the second sitting with the recording on the next day.

    It's what I make out of it, I guess...
    Many thanks for your encouragement, Jundo!

    Hi all,

    Not sure if I'll be there tonight. After feeling better on Sunday, I've had a sore throat all week. Doc assures me the virus is just stubborn and nothing serious, but eating and drinking are not so fun.

    Will be sitting tonight, but not until later, as always I look forward to the weekly zazenkai.

    Sunday morning zazenkai for me.

    With stuffy nose, headache, sore throat and noisy neighbors. Pure practice opportunities.

    Still, everything is fine and as it should be.

    Thanks to all who sat/will sit.
