The above (~1984 at Hokyoji) was from a practice period 4 or 9 day – we were free of commitments. Nonin was off to do so bird watching. Roshi wanted to go for a walk and needed a hat to shade his bald head so I found these – mine so he didn’t seem odd. “Really, Roshi, everyone is wearing them.”
Finally, you can find odd dharma talks by the odd Dosho over at the norm – Sweeping Zen. There’s a collection from my travels during the last year. Click here.
