My Thoughts on Zen; Classes Start Tomorrow



There. You can tell I’ve read Katagiri now.

Honestly? I think John Denver might be a zen master when he said, “Life ain’t nothing but a funny, funny riddle” in Thank God I’m a Country Boy.

Also, a link to John Scalzi’s baseball analogy for writing. Katagiri suggested that you can’t look at others. The story you write is your own. So, today, Scalzi too gets to be a bit zen.


The semester starts tomorrow, and Tuesday is going to be a BIG, BIG day. Four hours of teaching, lots of students, and beginning my firefighting class. I suspect I’ll be back Wednesday.

Meanwhile, we finish our directorship interviews, so I must away now to participate in that last interview. Tomorrow begins the first day of writing for an hour at work. Woot.
