I just made a correction to the webpage. This month’s all-day Zazen will not be on April 14th as previously announced, but on April 28th. This is because my wife Yuka is being introduced to American culture in the form of our inability to keep our hands off other peoples’ property. Her wallet was stolen recently from her work place. And, trust me, ain’t nobody even setting foot in the LUSH shop in Beverly Hills that needs to be stealing anybody’s wallet. Her bike was stolen from in front of the shop a few months before that. Face it, Americans, we are scum sucking bastards. I’m at a total loss to explain our complete lack of moral standards in this country. There really is no excuse.
Anyhow, her green card was in the wallet & now she has to go to immigration and beg them to let her stay and help rebuild our economy (her shop is doing scads better ever since she took over as manager). Her appointment’s on the 14th and since no one comes to these retreats for any other reason than to eat the food she makes, we’ve had to switch the date.
