    I just did the zazenkai in Hangouts. I think there was some confusion about whether the sit was to be in Hangouts or Zoom.

    Very soon we will be using Zoom. Hopefully that will solve the issue.

    Hi Washin Shungen, Tai Shi here. I'd like to be added to tomorrow's Sunday sit. I will be home to participate, no more the Christian church, only capital letter because it is a name, I attend the Sioux Falls U.U. church online, and every other Sunday there my good wife will take me, the only church liberal Zen to accept, one of the ministers practices Zen. So, please remember this solemn poet as you make your list, please? I'm up very early and can easily appear, and because of my biological, today I have very little, if any, pain. No, I say truth, so much is gone I can breathe. I have Zoom, and I'm ready.

    Hello again,

    There is the possibility of a power outage for my area due to extreme fire risk so the sit may be "interesting".

    I just completed the zazenkai. Zoom closed out in the midst of kinhin with a message that I had been inactive for over forty minutes. Muting and unmuting didn't prevent that from happening. I don't know if it was because I was the only person on the call.

    I hope everyone has a great week!
