at my desk, looking toward the redwood, the mountain, the sky

the first heavy rains of winter
wash my windows
and even the air
so clean
so clean
so clean.


lately i find peace in the buddhist heart sutra:
gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha

my favorite translation:
gone, gone, gone beyond, completely exposed, awake, so be it.


to read

to listen (track 10)

(track 11)

also, it is the heart of this entire book; presented in the first pages and returned to again and again.
