I don't mind

I ordered Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind for the Kindle yesterday. It is not "published" until March 15th, but on that date it should simply appear, silently and without fuss, on my reader, via the Whispernet.

How fitting that is for an aspiration to the state of ‘no-mind’.

Later, as I sat watching the Bomber's judo lesson, I got a chatty SMS from Andy M saying:
Hello Nick, just reading a new ish Oliver Sacks book called Musicophilia, very interesting read about music and the brain, have you read it? Hope you are well, Ben too, have to get together for a beer sometime .....
Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain sounding right up my street, especially with "The Plastic Brain" (Icons passim) having recently piqued my interest in this area, I whipped out the Kindle to get a copy only to find it is unavailable in any but dead tree format.

There was a gnashing of teeth. I am still some way from enlightenment.
