Planting Zen in Siskiyou Square
There’s a lot going on at Siskiyou Square. The pathway between 82nd and the parking lot / road got paved yesterday. The new flooring got delivered and unloaded into the Sodo this morning. And a helpful excavator driver moved a bunch of stones from the ravine up to a place where they can be considered for placement into our Japanese-style garden. Gemmon supervises Ikuo with a bobcat to move them further.
The office has moved and is now functioning in Uji. Things are still a bit disorganized and will need a lot of sorting, but it is really nice to have everything in one place on the property, and have the chance to settle in for a little while.
We have work parties most Wednesdays from about 9:30am to about 3:30pm. Park nearby, walk in by the path, and look for people out toward the Sodo. Most of those days we will also be doing zazen in Uji from 11:30am to 12:25pm, followed by lunch at 12:30pm at the 85th house (3155 NE 85th, a block from the main gate)
