To Practice In Interesting Times 06 - Election Day
Nov 5 16
We felt that we had something left to say before this election wraps up; clearly with a bang rather than a whimper. At the Zendo, we are in the midst of our Fall Practice Period and Mary is preparing to go poll watch in Nevada. So we carved some time and had at it. I apologize for the rough sound quality, but in the interest of getting this out in time for interested folks to hear it before Election Day, I decided to go with it and put it out, sonic warts and all. Don't worry, it's not your player.
We discuss the wound that seems at the heart of America. The wound that this election has, not gently, illuminated. We look for a way to not be angry. Mary discusses methods towards not hating when that is a hard thing to reason.
