Hello. My name is Rob. I like to practice Zen, write haiku, share quotes, take pictures, make coffee, and drink coffee. May this site be dedicated to sharing these interests.

"When we are doing zazen, does this mean that thoughts no longer arise and our heads become empty? No. It is natural that various thoughts arise. Let them come and go without pursuing them or driving them out. If a thought comes up, and we follow it, then we are thinking and no longer sitting the zazen posture. Do not chase after thoughts."-Kosho Uchiyama Roshi
