All okay, just helping out at a local festival.

Tomorrow, I am leading our Tsukuba sitters on a hike of Mt. Tsukuba. We'll sit a bit up there too.

Hi All,

I'm about to hop in my TARDIS and do a little time traveling to an earlier time and date for this weeks Zazenkai. I've got my coordinates set for Feb 13th 2010(before my time here!). This one stands out for me because nobody seems to have sat this one :( . At least that's what I gather considering there are no comments from any sitters.

Gassho,
John

Had a nice and relaxing Zazenkai yesterday, at the break of dawn.

Thank you, Jundo-Sensei.

And thanks all who sat, transcending time and space :D
