*within Flipboard below are some pieces relevant to our reading of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance--please read the following:
1. Neruda piece as well as the illustrated love letter to language found @ bottom the page (note: these first four pieces are on Brain Pickings)
2. Plato piece and embedded Ted lesson on his Allegory of the Cave (about 4 mins)
3. Collins reading his poem about Aristotle
4. Berry piece
5. "Beyond Anger"
6. baseball piece (if you're not into baseball, you can skip section II but still read I & III).
*I would suggest taking some "light" notes . . . something that you could use on a little reading check quiz . . .
