A commentary on the Shōbōgenzō by Francis H. Cook. Cook tries to cram Dōgen into this Rudolf Bultmann-y 'demythologization' framework, which runs counter to my understanding of the history of Japanese Buddhism and of Dōgen's liberal use of the techniques of anecdote and parable, but read with that in mind it's useful for other purposes and has clarified my understanding of various concepts.

Interesting piece of sexuality in the Arab world.

Useless without hands-on experience.

Given that one old Arabic text, discussed in the book, recommended a method involving a warm pitch, a parchment and your own little Anthony I think some experiences are better to avoid.

I just started reading Elizabeth Warren's memoir "A Fighting Chance."  Pretty par for the course so far, but I'm definitely enjoying it.

I just finished Silence by Shūsaku Endō in preparation for watching the film. It was very good and I highly recommend it. Didn't take more than a day or so to read.

Now I'm trying to get through something by Maritain that has befuddled me for a while.
