Palm Sunday, also known as Passion Sunday, begins another unusual journey.

Holy Week monastery retreat. Step by step meditation on -- what is -- this life.
The substance of a sage
Is nameless and cannot be spoken of;
The empty door of truth as it really is
Cannot be tarried in.
- Pai-chang (720–814)
Walking mountain snowy runway with new pup, we descend dusk.

First step --

Then next.

A time of silence.
