Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

I think this book impacted me more strongly reading it now because I was able to relate to it’s wandering journey. This year seems to be much more reflective than the last for me. To me this book is based on reflection. I often would zone out during long explanations of rheotoric or Aristotle. But still appreciated them.
The most interesting and succinct chapter for me was 26, the one on mind traps from achieving gumption. It’s clear I’ll often suffer from these and get stuck. The technique of fishing seems apt to me. Casting a mental line and just observing on what is wrong. Letting go and just discovering. I’m doing much more of this in 2011.
