Book Review: A Little Book of Zen, *****

I bought this book some six years ago and it has found a permament home atop my writing desk ever since. I open it almost every day, usually on a random page, and almost always find someething that gives me reason to pause and think positively. Strongly recommended as dispenser of a daily pill of wisdom.

The fact that an aphorism about half way through the book (pages are not numbeered) by one Koshi Philip Kaplan reads

"READING ABOUT ENLIGHTENMENT IS LIKE SCRATCHING AN ITCH THROUGH A SHOE"

did not discourage me from reading on... :-)
