||been a while since i
attended koyasan temple,
usually too tired for morning meditation but we
ourselves together to pitch in at volunteer
party to weed, prune, and prettify the
grounds. can you
spot the monk on the roof? that's taijo, cleaning
the gutters with
a handshovel. somehow i never saw the priests of my
youth doing that, although i do remember one drove a
met a bunch of nice people in an atmosphere of
casual shared purpose.
i'd rather do than sit, unless it's down to lunch,
which we did, tranquilly.
