Zen-inspired cartoonist Lynda Barry awarded MacArthur “Genius Grant”

I was just thinking about jealousy and couldn't recall any recent feelings of jealousy strong enough to register in memory. Until I read this Tricycle article on Lynda Barry's grant. From the article: In her 2008 interview with Vice, she noted that she listens to Shunryu Suzuki Roshi’s “wonderful” Zen talks while writing and drawing in her studio in Wisconsin. That would be the audiobook of Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind narrated by Peter Coyote. This will be added somewhere in the cuke ZMBM section. Congratulations Lyda Barry whose cartoons I was reading years ago! - dc- and thanks Peter Ford for the tip
