This morning I’m here on the north side of Chicago in Edgewater watching former Elephant Journal blogger “Ryder Japhy” listening to what appears to be his last purchase of a CD back in 2006, the last time he had a job, Bob Dylan’s Modern Times as he does 30 minutes on a stationary bike in his Shrine/Room/Cave.
Ryder Japhy said, “Dis-moi qu’est-ce que cela a à voir avec le Dharma?”
He asked, “What does this have to do with the Dharma?” in his St Bruno, Quebec, Anglophone/French that he has picked up since his graduation forty years ago this year from Richelieu Valley Regional High School in 1976.
Ryder continued, “Qui ose parler sera toujours jugé.”
He picked up the above words of wisdom,”Who dares to speak will always be judged” from French Twitter, his online home in exile.
More to follow.
