24 september 2002 everything changes
early autumn sunshine
and smallish fluffy clouds
eating snacks (missed meals),
and waiting for 6.00 pm
to check emails
after 'cheap time only' resolve
notes not complete
require reader to think
a man on a ladder
removing to letand for salesigns
in the dark
assisted by street lighting
...no one can deny this truth...
...because each existence is in constant change,
there is no abiding self.'*
*Shunryu Suzuki, Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind: informal talks on Zen meditation and practice, Weatherhill, New York & Tokyo 1970/1994, page 102.
