I was doing zazen today in front of a Kuan Yin statue that always seems to catch the incense smoke that meanders upward in front of it. I was sitting near the front door.
My daughter stopped on her way out to school and told me about a water-main break in a nearby community ... so maybe I should take an alternate route if I was headed that way. She looked pretty and I told her so. Then she left and I went back to zazen.
Isn't that the way things happen?
