Jane is a poet, essayest, Buddhist, and a friend and supporter and advisor of Cuke Archives. I'm most fortunate to have had her keen eye to go over Thank You and OK and Crooked Cucumber.

David Chadwick's unswerving decades-long dedication to the preservation of Suzuki-roshi's teachings and their legacy in both those who practiced with him directly and succeeding generations is a contribution beyond measure. I support the Cuke.com archive's continuance with huge gratitude to David for having taken this work on, and hope everyone receiving this request will give whatever they can to this indispensable record and treasure trove of the dharma.
