Me, personally?

What drew you to Zen?

Me, personally?

I take things apart.  When I was very young my mother bought me a build-your-own-crystal-radio set.  I never opened the box.  But one day she brought an old radio home that didn't work and I spent hours taking it apart, piece by piece.  

Why Zen?  It is just that when you take it apart, there is nothing there, and you realize ah! What I took apart, and the taking it apart, that is not Zen.
