Jay Rinsen Weik gives a talk and leads discussion at the Toledo Zen Center on November 5, 2008.
"I wanted to go off to the eastern cliff--
how many years now I've planned the trip?
Yesterday, I pulled myself up by the vines,
but wind and fog forced me to stop halfway.
The path was narrow, and my clothes kept catching,
the moss so spongy I couldn't move my feet,
So I stopped under this red cinnamon tree.
I guess I'll lay my head on a cloud and sleep."
- Han Shan
