QuotationDifficult to work (at writing) and difficult to get anyone to do my typing since Bro. Dunstan Foretich left. Yesterday, though it was very hot in the hermitage, forced myself to begin the long delayed introduction to John Wu's book [Note 17: Merton's introduction to John Wu's The Golden Age of Zen appeard as "A Christian Looks at Zen" in Zen and the Birds of Appetite]. But I still don't feel I am ready yet.
