Friends, I leave tomorrow to return to Winter Kyol Che, the annual three-month retreat at Diamond Hill Zen Monastery. As you recall, I sat the first three weeks of the retreat in January and then returned home to take care of personal matters. Those are complete, so now I'll return for the last six weeks.
I'll drive across the continent in mid-winter, which may turn out to be one of the craziest things I've done . . . or one of the most inspired. I would be grateful for your chanting, good thoughts and crossed fingers.
In any case, I won't post again until early April, after the retreat ends. Thank you for following Ox Herding over the past two weeks. (And if you didn't see the two new posts on Go Drink Tea!, please check them out.)
Today's video (which doesn't offer much of visual interest) features Deana Carter singing "State Trooper," a superb rendition of the great Bruce Springsteen song. Fine music for hitting the road.
Thank you for reading Ox Herding. And may your travels, even into the next room, benefit all beings!
