    Life as a storm

    Big test today. Storms raging. Getting battered around like butterfly. Sit on my zafu.

    Bells ring. Drink coffee and smile. I'm not just the butterfly, but also the storm itself. It's all good practice...even the parts that don't feel like good practice.

    Deep gassho to all my friends at treeleaf. Today is a beautiful day.
