Pétanque As Meditation

"Buddist master says French boules is an exercise in meditation," writes Times' Adam Sage, referring to French monk Maître Kaisen. I never played pétanque in France -- only watched the sociology of it whenever we vacationed in the South. But I grew found of it in L.A., where the local Pétanque Club plays in Rancho Park every weekend. Pétanque is indeed a mind-clearing, meditative exercise in French savoir-vivre. And the perfect opportunity to enjoy a banquet gaulois.
