the original plan was to go sit at the zen center this morning but then I noticed they are having a one-day sitting today so I suspect it will be crowded with old hands and I'm shy so I think I will shower and then sit here at home--Santiago willing--and then go for a walk. walking around the city on saturday morning is always interesting especially when your neighborhood harbors a fair number who have not been to bed yet.
when I get back I will think of something to do until this afternoon when I'm going to a gathering with friends b and e and, apparently, a sizable group of distressed liberals. perhaps we will begin plans for an overthrow. or maybe we'll just get drunk and cry in our beer.
