Today I had the privilege of taking the first two copies of Zenkei’s soon to be released book to her. As you can see from the photos she was thrilled. Thank you to Zenju Earthlyn Manuel for putting such effort into making sure Blanche could touch and see her book. You can pre-order your copies through the Zen Center Bookstore at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Zenkei sees the book for the first time.
While going through the cards and emails today, Blanche hands me one and says, “If anyone asks for a short word on what I tried to do in my practice, this is it.” She then asked me to put the card up on her wall.
Our practice is to live our daily life in such a way that every moment, ever act, becomes an act of love. ~~ Thich Nhat Hanh
[Zenkei added: “Or loving-kindness”]
Yesterday, I shared the entire list of folks wanting to see Blanche with her, she expressed how grateful she feels for all of the love and support. She is also saddened that she can’t muster the strength to visit with everyone who would like to visit. Blanche continues to ask for folks to please understand that even though you are all very precious she just can’t see people at this time.
I Bring all cards, emails and comments here to Blanche everyday. She is so thankful for all of the love and appreciation you direct towards her. Please do continue to reach out in this way.
Blanche continues to be extremely low energetically, but quite conscious and her family, and Zen Center continue to work to support her choices and decisions. There is nothing new to report, but we all also wanted to express our gratitude for your support during this time.
