Zazen & Dennys:  A short photo essay about spending the fall living in Kaigan-Ji temple. The temple’s monk, Shibata san, a retired GE business man who drives a subura, lives in a closed system eco home and regularly runs 5k into his 80s, taught me the wonders of having a home fax machine and sitting like a mountain.
