Sunlight on Bricks, Helsinki, 2009
I probably shouldn't have dissed Jiddu Krishnamurti in a comment the other day. He had his revenge -- today's zazenkai wasn't fun at all. I got a pain in my hip that I in no shape or form could "go beyond," and when I gave up and switched to seiza for the last two rounds of zazen, I got so blissed out from not being in pain that I nearly fell asleep. And to top it, I got confused and did all the wrong things during recitation. I think I only really practiced for about ten minutes total, tops.
Could be it's just lingering after-effects of the H1N1 shot I took the other day, though, and not Krishnamurti after all.
Still, I did get to stuff a zafu during samu, so it didn't all go to waste. Turned out nice, plump, black, and round. Very satisfying in its way.
Oh well, back to the ol' drawing board...
