i just went to the buddhist meditation center in barre, ma. there was a silence observation in place so i couldn’t actually talk to anyone. nice peaceful place though. reminded me of northern maine:no one to talk to, nothing to distract you, lots of nature, men in orange robes… i thought there would be an actual temple there, since that’s where “the next karate kid” supposedly took place. no dice… my search continues.
