Lao Tsu meets Oom Schalk Lourens in this delightful meditation on what it means to practise Zen in a changing South Africa.
Zen Dust moves from the stoep to the dusty roads of the Karoo, drawing inspiration and contemplating life as Osler drives between Poplar Grove, his farm and meditation centre close to Colesburg, and the small towns of the area like Hopetown and Koffiefontein.
We meet a kaleidoscope of everyday people and places, the karretjie mense, the opera-singing garage attendant and the folk of Fauriesmith in an exquisitely designed book where photographs by David Collett elegantly compliment Osler’s wise and humane writing.
