A while back I started working on a book with the working title White Belt. The idea was to explore my experiences in karate and music the way I used philosophy in my training.
It’s a good idea, but I kept running into the problem of having to explain the various disciplines. Talking about karate is useful in a general sense, but it is difficult to relate if you have not spent years in a dojo.
Banjos? Phooey. Banjos are even harder to relate to.
The Tao of Poo and Zen in the Martial Arts are both entertaining reads, I am a huge fan of both, but the authors derailed their works by trying to explain the unexplainable.
After trying a few things, pacing like a caged lion for long periods and beating my head against the wall, I told myself to take a break and make biscuits.
The How and the Tao of Buttermilk Biscuits will be finished in the next few months.
Over on our new Patreon, sponsors can take a peek at the first few paragraphs of a late draft. I have some more work to do before I hand it off to Dear Old Dad for his edit.
