Zen in the Art of Archery

Uptown 4 Train at 59th Street Station
Dave is a writer at an ad agency and his Creative Director gave him a copy of Zen in the Art of Archery by Eugen Herrigel. He told Dave that it would be a good book to learn how to reach a goal. I told him about a book I read in college, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. He had never heard of it.Zen in the Art of Archery "is confusing," he said. "I'm a Christian and this is not stuff I am used to reading." I was about to ask him to explain, but we had reached his stop.

Do me a favor and ask the woman sitting next to me why she's reading, "On the Low."
