Two in one day?


Irene had one of those book memes. Here are the instructions:
1. Grab the book nearest you right now.
2. Turn to page 56.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like).
5. Post a link with your post to Storytime with Tonya and Friends.

Since I was using a book as a mouse pad I decided to look at page 56.

" 'Keep that 'don't know' mind!' screams the Zen master."

Pardon me, but are Zen masters allowed to scream? The quote is from the book Thoughts without a Thinker: Psychotherapy from a Buddhist Perspective, by Mark Epstein M.D. I'm still on page 7 so I must not be very Zen yet.

Thanks for stopping by, you are getting ZEn. Have a great weekend.

The rule was 'book', but the first reading material was a magazine:

AMERICAN RIFLEMAN, official publication of the NRA, October, 1955; the following was found:

'It is with great regret that we learn of the deaths of the following NRA Life Members.'

The first member obituary was of Noel A. Gillespie, of Madison, WI.

OMG!!!!! I was going to send you my copy of that book! *LOL* Guess I'll have to find another home for it.

I'm thinking you haven't read it yet. 'Cause the Zen Master does more than scream. ;^)

hahah I'm not sure if Zen masters can scream! Congrats, too, on being a NaNoWriMo!

Oh; and that iron piece makes me think, since the hammer had to be that big to bend the nail like that, how big is the pry bar?
