QuotationFinished the first draft for my preface to John Wu's book on Zen. It is a great relief to get this out of the way. Writing of articles etc. becomes harder and harder. Much more inclined to spontaneous notes, poems etc. Letters are also an enormous chore which I go at with infinite repugnance.
