A thought

Sometimes its as useful to walk away from the work and reflect on the impact that other elements of our lives have on the work.  I love to read Buddhist poems and literature related – this poem is one of my favourites written by a Zen Buddhist (b.1758) Ryokan


To a Visitor

Listen to the cicadas in treetops near the waterfall;

See how last night’s rains have washed away all grime

Needless to say, my hut is as empty as can be,

But I can offer you a window full of the most intoxicating air !


It tells me that ‘ sometimes’ I have to stop and reflect on other things and look at the ‘intoxicating air’ of my life.
