    With a kind of awe, I am passing this one along, too. It is from a sequence of writings collected by the Zen scholar R.H. Blythe. I can't figure from the context who is the author or precisely what epoch of Zen this is, but it feels timeless to me, anyhow. "If you do not believe, look at September, look at October,
    How the yellow leaves fall, and fill mountain and river."

    enjoyed it very much....a warm, friendly group....though my back it a bit wonky this morning from the effort at proper posture...alas...will work on that...found a nice quote... that seemed appropriate for my experience. "If you wish to know the road up the mountain, ask the one who goes back and forth upon it." And this one, which made me laugh, from the poet Issa. "Climb Mount Fuji, / o, snail-- / but slowly, slowly!" I look forward to next week. Thanks for making me feel welcome.

      Glad you enjoyed it Alex. It was nice to meet you. The quotes are great. My teacher always says "just keep going", then great shifts will happen. See you next time.

    I'm going to do the socially responsible thing and keep my not so positive energy behind closed doors today. Enjoy.

    I am interested in attending. I read and studied a great deal of Zen writing (taught some, even, during my short post-doctoral teaching career but never participated in a group of practioners. Are there members interested in literature and art here?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
