|Del and Issan in Santa Fe|
I can't let these pictures Of Issan and some of his friends sit on my computer's hard drive out of sight. They were, I think, a gift from Del Carlson to the Hartford Street Zen Center. Jeff Thomas scanned them and sent me digital copies. I found a few others in various and sundry places.
|This is the earliest photo of Issan I found. I'd recognize that face anywhere.|
|He shaved his head.|
|He wore a dress and did his hair.|
|He was never afraid to share the spotlight.|
|Issan and James|
