It’s Tuesday…Where Are You? Plus, A Present From Things Mean A Lot

This Tuesday, I find myself with Kaoru Nonomura at Eiheiji, “one of the most rigorous Zen monsateries in Japan and head temple of the Soto sect of Buddhism.”

As I read Mr. Nonomura’s writing, I’m discovering how we tend to live our lives: carelessly eating, carelessly sleeping, carelessly sitting. His book, Eat Sleep Sit , is an absolutely fascinating look at what it means to live a life of discipline as a Buddhist monk. It’s a life of intention, to be sure, and you can expect a review near the end of this week.

Also, a special envelope arrived in the mail today, all the way from Portugal and Nymeth’s loving hands. She has sent me two bookmarks, and the sweetest note, as I am one of the winners from her Dewey Mini-Challenge. Thank you, dear Nymeth, because some things do mean a lot especially when they’re handmade presents!

  1. Enjoy the bookmarks! Everytime I hear myself saying "that means a lot to me" I immediately think of Nymeth. :)I wish I was in Japan right now–I'm with the crazy Wall family in West Virginia (The Glass Castle) and with a warewolf in cloudy Pacific Northwest (New Moon). Really liking the first, missing Edward in the second. Man, can't believe I'm saying that!! πŸ˜‰


  2. I am one of the lucky ones to have received 2 bookmarks from my friend Ana last Chrismas πŸ˜€ Enjoy them as much as I do.A nice evening to you Meredith πŸ˜€
