25% off Zen

Zen cannabis store in Humboldt county California

Just a quick year-end post to remind everyone that Zen is now 25% off in Humboldt County. Act now!

Apart from this utterly absurd but perfectly composed photo of American life, circa 2022, I was also gifted this interesting Buddha image from my mom. We have no idea where it came from, but the lack ornamentation on the head (no uṣṇīṣa, no hair) leads me (and some folks on the internets) to suspect it’s not actually the Buddha but perhaps a monk (or even not Buddhist at all but Jain). If my readers have any thoughts, feel free to drop a comment below.

Here at the end of 2022, I feel it would be appropriate to make some reflective, summative comment on the year. But I don’t much feel like it. This year was, by any measure, not my best. And I am very much looking forward to the new year during which there will be much happening. So stay tuned, dear readers, for many announcements in the weeks and months ahead.

In the mean time, I hope everyone is enjoying their year-end holidays. And my best wishes for a peaceful new year.

  1. It looks Balinese to me, probably carved by a non-Buddhist for export to gift shops. It’s best not to read too much into the details of Buddhist imagery which are created by non-Buddhists. They were not designed for Buddhists—they were designed to look “peaceful” in someone’s home.
