Audrey Robinson (Walter) on Eliot's Blow-out Encounter
12-26-07 - Tassajara: One day happy little Eliot was walking somewhere by the han & between the kitchen and the dining room when he blew his what-do-you-call those paper party favors that unroll and toot at Suzuki Roshi. Roshi turned and rapped him on the back with his kyosaku. I've heard this story many times. He left a mark! Eliot told me with some delight. -Was he kidding, I asked. -No. I was being noisy and disrespectful. An American kid, in other words.
