srhat.JPG (28627 bytes) The Cucumber Project includes all the work I'm doing to preserve the legacy of Shunryu Suzuki: Crooked Cucumber,, interviewing people and getting all my materials organized and archived. The SF Zen Center is also involved in an extensive project to preserve archive Suzuki Roshi's lectures. See Lecture Project. The photo above by Tim Buckley is of Suzuki Roshi in Vermont to conduct a funeral in 1971 - this is not during the funeral of course. Click on it to enlarge.

All the materials in this section are pretty old but I'm still working on the same stuff here in 2005 - plodding along with it when I have time. - DC
