Death in the Sangha

We just learned that Joe Metzinger, a Cleveland Sangha member, died of Covid-19 on April 2. Joe attended his first 7-day sesshin last year, and was scheduled to return for this year’s March sesshin that had to be cancelled.

Our condolences to our Cleveland Zazen Group and all who knew Joe.

Mischka, R.I.P.

Last week, at the full moon, Mischka, the Kubicka’s Siberian husky and Chapin Mill’s friendly greeter and groundhog chaser, wandered far from her home and died. At 15 she was at the end of her life expectancy and had great difficulty walking. She was given a memorial service and buried at the edge of the woods. She is greatly missed.
