It is nearly 2 a.m., and I am exhausted after a fifteen hour day at work. It was a good day, but longer than I was hoping it would be.
Tomorrow bright and early I will be leaving for Black Mountain Center for the five-day Rohatsu Sesshin. Rohatsu means "Dec. 8" and it refers to Buddha's enlightenment. The silent sitting period is in honor of that historic date.
I had hoped to be rested and ready - instead I have not yet packed, and I'm worn out. But, it will be what it will be! I'll try to sleep fast tonight.
I will be offline until Monday night, Dec. 14.
