    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TAIGU! Half a Century ...

    A Happy Birthday (and, since this is Zen ... non-Birthday) to Bro. Taigu, who reaches the BIG 50 Today!

    Taigu, now you are old enough to be called "Old Teacher"!!

    Well, they say 50 is the new 30 ... and anyway, Zen folks do not quite believe in time!

    Have a good day, T ... and everything in moderation!

    Diligently attain nothing. Sort of. Best not to over-think it.

    Dear Taigu,

    On your birthday -

    I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.

    Rabindranath Tagore

    Happy day!

    Happy Birthday Taigu. Good luck with the next 50!
    If I'm already enlightened why the hell is this so hard?
