Anyway, I am letting my hair down and taking the day off - at least until Young Urban Zen, which doesn't seem like work. As such I stayed in bed until breakfast time - having woken up ridiculously early yesterday, which at least meant I got to watch a few more hours of the Tour of Flanders than I had expected. I also missed work meeting this morning, but everyone I have seen since then told me I was effusively thanked, so I am glad I saved myself the embarrassment.
Mainly I wanted to post this picture of Blanche from after the shuso ceremony, as it came out rather nicely, and a brace of sky pictures from some of the changeable weather we had during sesshin:
|The first two are a sunset, looking west and north respectively; this was a sunrise on a different day|
