hospitable to nothing.

There are times when everything goes flat. 

Nothing seems to reflect meaning or consequence.

Today that time visits.

Is welcomed. As it devastates.

“What is the truth of all religions?” asked inmate at morning prison conversation.

Suffering is moving through life this moment

We take Thursday Evening Conversation to Augusta.

With chicken soup.

And Bart Ehrman.

After walking breakwater in Rockland

Maybe it is a dream.

Just an experience of mind.

A passing phantasm.

Mere allusion.

This life.

Wu Wei

Twilight birds 
before dawn 
made of coming light
morning sound

Your color

This May afternoon

what shall I call you?

If Silence knew
its first name
It would be called 
at last "Now"

Half our sand

In zendo 
silence --
nothing moves
