This evening I am grateful for :
- the Sutra Salon, a book club I belong to
- the Flower Ornament Scripture, the book we're reading,
- Thomas Cleary, the scholar who translated it, and
- Walter Blom, my good friend, who helped me "get it" that this book was addressed not to my head, but to my heart. I'm reading it aloud to myself or to my wife if she's home.
