I tried sitting half lotus on a chair this morning. Meh.
I think that full lotus on a familiar zafu and zabuton are best. (for me)
But I won't see mine for a long time. They are still in transit and won't arrive here in Okinawa until February 12th. I get on a ship around the end of this month and wont come back for about three months or so.
I've been using the air zafu and that is ok. I'm not sure how that will work out at sea though.
Sitting on the boat will be interesting. Its been about five years.Last time I was on a boat was around the time I found my interest in Buddhism renewed. Maybe this time I'll give it up... Ha!
I remember a bit of buddhisty writing that mentioned something called "The Floating World."I don't think it had much to do with going to sea. (Note, via Iron Grindstone: "The 'Floating World' was the refined-yet-racy culture of the geisha district outside Tokyo."
I think I'll go clean the cat's toilet now.
