Comments on the Introduction to Crooked Cucumber: the Life and Zen Teaching of Shunryu Suzuki - after some Bali ramblings, or local news and ruminations. Opening and introductory words first of course. Bali ramblings begin at 4:53. Zen stuff begins at 18:22 with a phone conversation with Sojun Mel Weitsman, the abbot of the Berkeley Zen Center in CA. We get into the book at 26:46 with a brief reading through the front matter followed by comments on the cover, front matter, and introduction which takes a little over an hour followed by the soothing closing words and music.
