Overview

"As clear-seeing as a dustless mirror angled into a school of sun fish, the tiny poems of this book carry a multitude of reflections bright as mica,
consummately free in spirit, and in equal measure comic and profound." -Jane Hirshfield, poet, translator, essayist After-"Best Book of 2006," Washington Post "Just what we need, and just when we need it: a holy madcap who wears ancestor Ikkyu's sandal for a rain hat, meets the world with wonder, laughs himself and everyone else awake, and prays your name like the petals of a rosary. When you look for him, he disappears; when you forget him completely, he startles you with a kiss. Richard Weekley's Already There is right on time."
-Peter Levitt, author of Within Within and Fingerpainting on the Moon: Writing and Creativity as a Path to Freedom in addition to other books of poetry and translation, and founding teacher of Salt Spring Zen Circle on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia "...Zen Nam frolics down the trail of life, tossing petals of wisdom in his whimsical wake... reminding us it is the journey that matters because the arrival never comes." -Donald McLeod, widely published haiku poet and Butoh Artist (www.zenbutoh.com) Winner of the Haiku Society of America's International Book Award
