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!
