Harvey's homework assignment: Listen to the 'Book of Tea'

Sempai Harvey has sent out a homework assignment. Here's what it said:

It is very easy, almost painless, unless you do it all while in seiza, but an important one. Please respond when you have finished.

Your homework assignment is to listen to The Book of Tea by Okakura Kakuzo. (It WOULD be better if you read along in the book while you are listening to it, but…) Here is the link to the book on LIBRIVOX:

http://librivox.org/the-book-of-tea-by-okakura-kakuzo/

Scroll down to find the Zip file.
Download.
Un-Zip the file.
You can throw away the Zipped file.
Save the Un-Zipped folder.
Open I-Tunes. Drag the files into I-Tunes. I use a separate Playlist for each Book.

Be careful to check that the chapters are in the correct sequence. Sometimes they get shuffled in the download/unzipping process.

After listening, please be prepared to share impressions, insights, agreements or disagreements with the author’s ideas and comments.

This work can be very helpful to your way of Tea.

Ponder this deeply.

Pax,
