Zen is Timeless (but posting isn't)

Coming back from an interlude of activity.  I didn't want to post any more until I finished designing, creating, and testing the "meditation back support device" I've been working on. Wow, that's a mouthful.

Good news.  I finally finished the device and I've been testing it the past few weeks.  It's AMAZING!!!  After I sewed it together and did the first sit I knew I was very close.  I had to tweak a couple of design  features to dial it it totally exceeds my expectations.

The thumbnail shows what it looks like.  I'm currently by myself in the mountains so I can't take a picture of it in use. When I get home I'll post an update with "action" shots of me sitting with the "meditation back support device."

I think that this could be a huge help to anyone who practices zazen and has back problems.  I'm considering having them made and selling them with the proceeds going to my local sangha.  We'll see.  If I do then I think we should have a naming contest and the winner gets a free "meditation back support device"...zenza?

This week I will post a couple of additions to the book review section. So if you are looking for a good Zen read you might check that out.
