  1. Dear Florence, what a fantastic job you did! Thank you for our shoutout, too–it was a great surprise coming from you. Isn’t William’s latest chapter the bet one yet! We send our daimoku to Karen and her dad, so Karen can rejoin her children and husband at the earliest possible moment. Please make room as often as possible for Florence on the show. Wouldn’t it be lovely to get a group of her peers together to discuss some of President Ikeda’s guidance for youth.

  2. What a great show!

    Flo, I had to laugh when you said your Dad’s intro was “really cheesy!” Seriously, though, you did an amazing job, even on those hard-to-pronounce names during the Shoutouts. I was really impressed!

    Jason, I’m so glad you asked Florence to co-host. You must be so proud! And thank you so much for playing “Where Would You Be.”

    Loved Chapter 9. Ever since I read The Dancing Wu Li Masters years ago, I’ve been fascinated by the spiritual implications of quantum mechanics. Apologies to the quantum physicists who believe people make too much of these implications, but when one sees such obvious evidence of esho funi in day-to-day life, it’s difficult, when we read about the experiments, to deny this spiritual principle working at a subatomic level.

    Anyway, William’s book is wonderful, as is his reading of it.

    All love to the Jarretts, and I wish Karen’s father a speedy recovery.

  4. Hi Jason & Florence.

    You were both wonderful a ‘new team’ in the making so Karen can get a break now and then. Like in Buddhism, opportunities and talents arise in our lives when we least expect them, well done Florence looking forward to some more of your Podcast skills.
    Wishing Karen’s father a good recovery and she’s back with the team asap.

    Yes Flo, dad’s intro was cheesy but he’s lovely as you know!

    William was great, what a wonderful Buddhist

    A Happy & White Christmas to you all!

    Thank you again, Christopher
