The Wreck of the Number Nine

Hey Todd get a load of this! It drives my wife nuts and then she has folkster songs in her head all night!

Grinding Down

The field of boundless emptiness
Is what exists from the very beginning.
You must purify, cure, grind down,
Or brush away all the tendencies
You have fabricated into apparent habits.
Then you can reside in the
Clear circle of brightness.

- Hongzhi Zhengjue (1091–1157)


Mondays are the day that I reclaim myself. Being present to other people is more draining than anything I have ever done before. So after a day of hospital visits, praying etc., one whole day alone is usually my medicine. Adding things to my blog is a good exercise. Meditation practice is the real deal though. Not only does it restore spiritual energy but it heals the body as well. Mondays are indeed good days.

St. Isidore pray for us.

More spring

The garage finally finished ( a place for the tractor to live ).

Rex the sheep dog waiting for some action.

Some more sure signs of spring under the apple tree.
