Re: What do you read?

Hi Barokgs,

Some heavy weights in that list!

Talking about books I am reading and enjoying "The Single Tone" by Christopher Yohmei Blasdel. Really nice book with lots of Shakuhachi in it (maybe it's my imagination but his writing style reminds me of a Shauhachi playing).


"An artist has got to be careful never really to arrive at a place where he thinks he's "at" somewhere. You always have to realise that you are constantly in the state of becoming. And as long as you can stay in that realm, you'll sort of be all right"

Re: What do you read?

"The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" -- Douglas Adams

Your never-ending source for ultimate knowledge in the universe...

Oh, and I suppose I should mention that I enjoy Thich Nhat Hanh and Dostoevsky too, though I hardly see how you would ever need more than the Guide to make it through life. smile
