The Empty Mirror

Posted to What Are You Reading?

for another portrait of Snyder, check out Janwillem van de Wetering's _The Empty Mirror: Experiences in a Japanese Zen Monastery_, where he's known as "Gerald." Wetering and Snyder studied at the same monastery in the late 50s/early 60s. he even confirms the baggy of trail mix/chocolate that Japhy tells Ray Smith is excellent fuel for meditating.
