John Nelson, the USF Buddhism etc prof whose Bali blog was featured yesterday wants to know who that is to the left of Shunyru Suzuki in this photo and also I'd like to know who that is behind him. I keep thinking his name is Larry. The SFZC has used this photo numerous times through the years. It has a number in the Shunryu Suzuki photo archive but can't look for that now due to its rank on the priority list.
Please send any answer to this query to dchad at cuke dot com. Thanks, dc
John Nelson has for years been an advisor to Cuke Archives and the Shunryu Suzuki Legacy Project which reminds me to ask him for some advice again. - DC
