In Place: An Album 12


A friend donates chairs; with these,
two to four may sit thinking no thoughts
or thinking of thinking no thoughts
while gazing at knotty fir

Four folding chairs came with someone’s spare card table.  It’s encouraging how many useful things one can tuck into an eight by ten shed and not feel that it is cluttered.

The first thing is to learn how to quiet the mind, relax the mind, and bring the awareness to the front so that we are conscious of what we're doing when we're doing it without all the commentary.
