The japanese zen chants cd is playing. There is some throat music in it it seems like. It gets rather eerie too at times. The cat meows to go outside. I have never set foot in japan. I am not interested in the cities, so pricey. I would go to the nunneries and huts in the forests. Also pricey, but more my interest. Oh, to be a zen nun lost to the forest, doing herbals and botany and cooking!
