And the day came when the risk it took to remain tightly closed in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to bloom. Anais Nin


Everything Is Your Life

- Dogen (AD 1200 - 53)

"Whatever you encounter, day and night, is your life; you should therefore give yourself to each situation as it arises from moment to moment. Use your life energy towards that purpose, so that from the circumstances that befall you, you may create a harmonious life with all things in their rightful place."

Seems like simple wisdom. We all know that simple wisdom is frequently hard to implement. Try as we may, we get hung up along the way.

Caught in the Cross Hairs
By toni

"you can’t steal second base and keep your foot on first"

it is incumbent upon you
to relish life
not live the colorless
regimen of the fishwife
ransomed by fractal proportions
with no gallantry in matters
utilitarian and dreary

run headfirst
along baselines
let home float
on sensations

wisdom is unforeseen
wonder is surefire
when tomorrow is indefinite
today can be remarkable
