    The other video I mention on Zendo decorum is this one, from our "Always Beginners" video Series:

    Mud Puppies do turn out to be a thing, although not the beings that Sekishi was thinking about during our tea time ...






    https://www.nationalgeographic.com/a...facts/mudpuppy

    Size and Range
    Among the largest of the salamanders, mudpuppies can exceed 16 inches in length, although the average is more like 11 inches. Their range runs from southern central Canada, through the midwestern United States, east to North Carolina and south to Georgia and Mississippi.

    Habitat
    Mudpuppies live on the bottoms of lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams, and never leave the water. They hide themselves in vegetation and under rocks and logs, emerging at night to feed on whatever prey they can catch, including crayfish, worms, and snails.

    Unique Characteristics
    Mudpuppies are easily distinguishable by their bushy, red external gills, which they grow as larva and never lose. They have flat heads, wide tails, stubby legs, and feet with four distinct toes. Their bodies are gray or brownish-gray with blue-black spots.
    Sekishi apparently mistook them for the "Devil's Hole Pup Fish" ...

    A common mistake.

    Oh what a wonderful Zazenkai today. As soon as Jundo started speaking about one mistake after another I had a sense this was especially important for me, so I sat as best I could to let the words wash over/through/around me. Even the bad jokes that were mistakes Really, a lovely lead up to Ango.

    They’re also known as waterdogs. To quote someone I know, “What’s in a name? Pupfish, mud puppy, waterdog—just don’t call me late to dinner!”

    It was great having you there in person! I hope it wasn’t too challenging… I know how hard it is sometimes to sit for 1 hour when the body is tired! Thank you for making the effort

    Many thanks for a lovely zazenkai. Mud puppies really jolted a long forgotten memory. When I was about five I had a book titled "Fishes" which was about...fishes. The section in the book on mud puppies fascinated me so thanks for the childhood flashback!

    My mistake for going over three sentences.

    Thank you everyone. I sat with all of you this morning.

    There are no mistakes. Every action is just the universe universing. Nevertheless try not to do bad things, try only to do good things, do good things for the benefit of others.
