It took much time to get the sitting up today (YouTube and Google are tricky to use for big videos), but please don't miss this one and sit-a-long if you can ...
While Hans is visiting Treeleaf from Germany, I took him on a hike of our local mountain ... Mt. Tsukuba. It is one of Japan's 'Great Mountains' ...
You can read all about "Tsukuba-san" here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mt._Tsukuba
So, please sit with Hans and me next to a -really- grand 'ol rock.
Will does not know it yet (his plane is due in about now), but I am taking him for the same this weekend. Check that out too!
Hans will testify that I move down that mountain pretty good ... for a 48 year old fat man.
PS- Yesterday's two hour retreat is playing (don't miss Hans' great rendition of the "Heart Sutra" in Japanese!), but it takes about 5 minutes or so to start after you hit the play button (more technical glitches!). Please check that out too if you can, be patient, and sit-a-long ...
