I spent last night rewriting chapter 8 of ZAZEN (lagerstätte), which is now up on Arthur. It has been pointed out that my copy editing skills could use some work but I wasn’t able to touch it up without second guessing it and rearranging it. Much like Michael Jackson’s face, the “just one more little thing” mentality of rewriting is something to be feared. To those who say I frequently don’t catch typos, you should see me write in GErman. It’s a tragedy.
Regarding the question, what the hell is a lagerstätte…I point you toward a wonderful bit of history, the ever popular (in my head) Solnhofen Limestone.
As for the paper mache Head of John the Baptist made out of the paperwork associated with a personal academic history–well, that needs no explanation.
