Yes, I'll be at the Valley Forge Gun Show
this weekend at the Valley Forge Convention
Center in PA displaying the knives you've
seen posted on here as Zen and the Art of
Knifemaking. Friday 4PM to 9PM, Sat 9 to 5,
and Sun 9 to 4.
It's quite a surreal scene - hundreds of gun
dealers and thousands of people buying rifles,
guns, ammo, and other similar weapons. And also
many who buy my knives. And lo and behold, many
of them are members of the Meditation Society
of America and many who follow this forum.
The show is held 4 times a year and since I've
stopped teaching for the local adult education
programs, it's great to see some of our students
and get to touch base with them. When we taught
at the Haverford adult program it was held at a
school that was right across the street from a
fire house and we would often get startled by
their alarms going off. What could be a better test
to see if you could maintain a firm state of
awareness than that? Well, the answer may just
be "Any given moment at a gun show". In any event,
I look forward to seeing those of you I know will be
stopping by to say hello, and welcome the opportunity
to meet any of you who will also be showing up.
Below is the web site that has pics of the knives
I'll have on my table, and I hope you are already
familiar with our web site, Meditation Station.
Peace and blessings,
