Pub. Date:
One hundred days, one complete opportunity to look at the way spiritual practice operates and life actually works. Robert Winson, poet, parent, and Buddhist priest, and Miriam Sagan, poet, parent, and practitioner, spent a winter in a Zen Buddhist monastery at Crestone, Colorado. While engaged there, each kept diaries, noted the events of their lives, took notice. The result is a curious documentation -- via dreams, facts, marital tension, gossip, and honest exploration -- of the dynamics of the Dharma. Dirty Laundry is both pun and koan and, essentially, real. Paying attention can require us to come clean -- as in wash and wear. The diary was unintentionally a record of dissatisfaction and disillusionment, and a record of a man who was sicker than he thought. Robert died four years later of the after-effects of surgery meant to cure him.
