A Way of Life: Zen Monastics at Work and at Play by Paul Davis
A Way of Life: Zen Monastics at Work and at Play - Paul Davis

I have to admit I have honestly never really thought that much about Buddhist Monks and Nuns and their way of life. Many people like myself just knew what we see on television. A bunch of people wearing long robes walking around praying. This book will open every ones eyes about the way of life of the buddhist Monks and Nuns. Paul Davis has done an amazing job with about 50 black and white photos in this book, we can now see the truth in their lives. The photos show an array of activities from playing kickball to washing dishes. There is a smile in just about every picture. There are quotes throughout the book as well. I was actually touched by some of the quotes. I feel just by looking through this book I have a new understanding of the lives of the Buddhist Monks and Nuns, at work and play. 

 

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.

Parent and child yoga.
Zoo Zen: A Yoga Story for Kids - Kristen Fischer,Susi Schaefer

With yoga enjoying widespread favour, I'm sure this will be a popular book. Children love to share with parents, and what better than exercising together? 

 

Although intended for children aged four to eight, my 18 month grandchild was mesmerised by the colourful illustrations of the zoo animals, and I don't think it would be long before he might attempt to copy some of their movements. 

Maybe not a book for grandparents to share as I'm not as nimble as I once was, but I'm sure this will be a hit with parents who are happy to slither on the ground or balance on one leg to demonstrate the actions.

In case of any doubt, full descriptions of the eleven poses are included at the end of the book.

HOW MY DRUM MAJOR TURNED ME GAY by Julie Zen
How My Drum Major Turned Me Gay - Julie ... How My Drum Major Turned Me Gay - Julie Zen

First time experience between the drum major and the sousaphone player in a practice room. It is down and dirty but I miss the build-up and anticipation of the sex. It was a wham, bam, thank you, ma'am.

The Zen Teaching of Bodhidharma - Bodhidharma,Red Pine

As a lamp, a cataract, a star in space
an illusion, a dewdrop, a bubble
a dream, a cloud, a flash of lightning
view all created things like this.

 

Red Pine

 

May 11, 868: The Diamond Sutra, a book of Buddhist teachings, is thought to be the oldest surviving complete printed book that has a date of printing. Bill Porter, pen name Red Pine, is the author of a popular English translation.
