Just jump in if joining, no "catch up" ... just today is today ...

I will include chapter headings, as we discovered some differences between the US and UK editions regarding chapter order.

Chapter 57 - Appreciate Your Connection With Things - Find an object or tool you use daily around the house, very mundane and ordinary, which you give little thought or notice. Take a moment to consider it, feel appreciation for what it does for you, offer Gassho.

Chapter 58 - Try Just Sitting Quietly ln Nature - Perhaps a practice a bit easier in spring than winter if cold where you are, but take a moment to sit Zazen outside, in the open air and near some nature ... even if a leafless winter tree. However, please only do so for a minute or two, because we don't want anyone to catch a chill!

Gassho, J
