One of my two weekly remote sits (via hangouts) is with the intrepid +Thomas Buckley-Houston, who has given up his Bristol apartment for an extended period of travel. Since his surroundings are going to be changing, I decided to take snapshots every week as he moves around the planet. Here are the first three; somehow I've lost the one of him in his own place, before he left.

Tom and I didn't know each other when we were zabuton neighbors at a Korean Zen silent retreat last Spring. Afterwards, we discovered we're both rubyists, and struck up a friendship that is sustained by this weekly sit.

And if you're thinking "sitting meditation over the internet, that's nuts," you're wrong, it's awesome. Even Do-On Robert Thomas at SFZC has said "Amazingly, it was just like sitting here [in the zendo] with all of you. It was just like it!" (see from 43'45" in http://livestream.com/accounts/3506794/events/3747512)
