Thanks Margie,

I have to admit I had some sudden little Satori flashes when I read your poem. Maybe I'll have to rethink my position against 'transmission'. :-)

Hi Edgar-

Ah, marvelous poem. And your point that most people think it's a put
down of zen reminds me... I've had a lot of people tell me there are
too many contradictions in zen and this always makes me laugh.
