    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:

    A video of today's guest, Mr. Aita, at work building the Zendo a few years ago ...



    He is a good friend, as is the builder, Mr. Ushioda, also seen here.

    Very cool Jundo, thank you. Also, I noticed you focused in on Mr. Aita's Jika Tabi ... is that common to see when folks are working outside?

    Being a novice priest doesn't mean that my writing about the Dharma is more substantial than yours. Actually, it might well be the other way round.

    Thank You Jundo and everyone. Good to see the Zendo and some exterior shots. I've often wondered what the place looks like from the outside - helps me get to know my way around.

    Wish you all well.

    Sat with you today. I appreciated the talk about being carpenters and what we build with the "wood" we have to work with... an important reminder and well timed for me. Many thanks for introducing us to Mr. Aita!

    Thank you. I just sat with this. The carpenter shapes the wood and the wood shapes the carpenter.

    A few weeks ago we had a house raising for a young family in the community. If a group of neighbors can create timber frame by working together, just think what can get done when we all work together as one.
