Alaska has mosquitos? I've forgotten about them....

As long as you are going Zen . . .

D.T. Suzuki wrote about his experience of achieving enlightenment. He had gone out of the monastery and was sitting in meditation on the mountainside. The mosquitoes were biting him, and he thought "If something as tiny as a mosquito can keep me from maintaining my meditative focus, I'll never . . ." and that was IT.

Then, umpteen years later, the TV comes on on PBS, on a show in progress. It's a show, at least this part of it, about the same monastery. It shows the monks going out to meditate in nature. They carry little pop-up mosquito shelters . . .
