A Fine Book...

A good friend of mine recently returned from 'Down Under' and brought back a wonderful book, 'The Zen Master, the Potter and the Poet' by Milton Moon ( It is a special book full of Moon-sensei's anecdotes of many journeys to Japan, his insights into good pots and the wisdom that can be found when one listens to them in silence. Mr. Moon, if you ever visit Japan again please allow me to take you to Ryutakuji, if you haven't already been, and we can retrace the steps of Hakuin, and also Tsuji Seimei, the photo of him in the previous posting was taken at Ryutakuji. Blessings abound....
