Got a donation today to Cuke Archives from a person in Burlingame. I recalled Burlingame. I stayed at the Mercy Center there twenty years ago. Not in the convent adjoining. Gave a talk. Sat zazen with Father Hand who had studied Zen in Japan for a long time and created a zendo and a labyrinth for walking meditation. There are a lot of images of it online. Here's one. I'd like to go back and walk that labyrinth. I'm into walking meditation these days and back then I liked to walk. I still like to walk. - dc
