Suzuki and Dainin Katagii looking serious, not sure where but looks like a little zendo, maybe Los Altos - SR0143 in the Shunryu Suzuki photo archive - Click on thumbnail to enlarge. - DC


In the interviews about his life Shunryu Suzuki's English gets worse. Reminds me of a study of George W. Bush's grammatical errors and fumbling use of English coming up mainly when he was talking about subjects he was uncomfortable with or not interested in, like taxes, peace, poverty, oh yes - and his past. And found that place mentioned yesterday where Suzuki totally disses the value of looking at him in terms of his life history. The "all will be lost" quote. I see it like we're out on a boat, everyone saying Suzuki did this and Suzuki said that and a storm comes up and we all go down with the ship screaming and flapping our arms. Oh darn. Missed the liferaft.
