Fishing Through Ice In Frozen Mist, Helsinki, 2010
This one went OK. Better than the last one, anyway. I managed to practice – more or less – most of the time, and only got into a bad posture during one round of zazen, which caused my right hip to scream bloody murder again. Other than that, I hurt a good deal less than on the previous ones.
Went to daisan again. It was nice. Got some advice about my practice in ice-hockey metaphors which flew right past me, but I think I got the intent anyway. (Maybe I should start following some sports one of these days.)
Next up is a weekend retreat in another couple of weeks, assuming they got my registration and accepted me.
My practice hasn't been all that great lately, actually, but I think I found it again. Ups and downs are all a part of it, or so I've heard tell...
