    tropical storm Andrea

    Craft project for a tropical storm. $7 worth of canvas, a thick old king size comforter to stuff the zabuton; stuffing for the zafu from a big old cushion which appears to be textile mill sweepings, like giant dryer lint, about the same consistency of kapok (both free).
    Now to test drive it...

    May all beings everywhere plagued with sufferings of body and mind
    quickly be freed from their illnesses.
    May those frightened cease to be afraid
    and may those bound be free.
    May the powerless find power
    and may people think of befriending one another.

    Lovely. And metta to all in bad weather tonight around the world.

    As an old Florida boy, I have sat Zazen more than once huddled in the closet, in the dark, as a hurricane rattled the roof and windows.

    Here in Japan, I just sit through earthquakes.

    Gassho, J

    Thanks for sharing. I've sewn a couple of zafus, then became sidetracked by other life events. Never stuffed them or tested them out. The zabuton is motivating, since I was wondering what I would use for stuffing. (don't have the money to spend on cotton batting) Best of luck during the storm; we're getting some of the rain up here, but nothing like what you may have.

    Much metta to all who were affected and for those who will be hit in this hurricane season. We sit for them and their families.

    If I am posting, I have sat today.
