there only butterflies pick
buckets-full of fun

Its time to say farewell to February once more
Visitors to this blog, know by now, that i dub February 'My Month' because i was born on February 11th
Did you know
February 30 occurs in some calendars, but not in the Gregorian calendar, where February contains only 28, or in a leap year, 29 days. February 30 is usually used as a sarcastic date for referring to something that will never happen or will never be done.

grasping solitude -
the many thoughts that can be
written on the wind

Carpe Diem #405, Zenjibuji (Temple 32)

It maybe well here to note the use of words in Zen, the way in which silence and speech are one thing. In all true Zen language and conversation, that is to say, whenever two minds are really in communion, any given word connotes its logical opposite as well. So if we say "selflessness", it means, in conjunction, "selffulness". "Loneliness" is also a state of interpenetration with all other things. Thus Basho (1644-1694) says, aspiring to be in this state:

ah, Kankodori,
deepen thou
my loneliness

Tuesday was my birthday, and yesterday afternoon, my daughter took me out to tea

leaving the tea shop...
allure of sound of water
to a small fountain
