My favorite story [about the tenken at Tassajara] is the time that I knocked softly on Arnie Kotler's door, opened it a crack, and said, "Arnie, it's the tenken." He replied, "I can't believe I'm not there already." - David Schneider from a cuke page on tenken.
Arnie anecdote about Shunryu Suzuki fromZen is Right Here.
Here's the cover of Inquiring Mind with Editor's Notes, Spring 2007 (Vol. 23 #2) - The Tough Stuff: Money Sex Power - Arnie had an article in there on his relationship with Richard Baker and Thich Nat Hahn. Will try to get it here. - dc

4-15-07 - "Today Koa Books and Maxine Hong Kingston will be receiving a "Special Recognition in Publishing" Award from the Northern California Book Reviewers on Sunday Aprli 15 at 1 pm at the San Francisco Main Library. You are cordially invited to attend." That's from an email from Arnold Kotler (cuke interview) (see yesterday's entry). I think this award involves Veterans of War, Veterans of Peace, edited by Maxine Hong Kingston and published by Koa Books.
May Koa Books prosper.

Right now gotta go meet with Suzuki student Arnold Kotler
of Koa Books and some other friends
to talk about publishing and Koa Books I guess. Check out their web site
and see what they've got. I'm especially interested in the book
featured there right now.
