Leaves fold inward
I'm turning inward too, shutting doors and windows,
sifting through the past in the moment,
releasing the past in the moment,
noticing the moment
"Reality is reality. It transcends every concept.  There is no concept that can adequately describe it, not even the concept of interdependence.  To assure that one doesn't become attached to a philosophical concept, out teaching speaks of the three non-natures to prevent the individual from becoming caught up in doctrine of  three natures."
-Tich Nhat Han-
 This woman is noticing too...noticing how she feels perhaps, on that specific day in the early 1900s.  She might be contemplating her place in the world, seeing visions, struggling with her dual nature, or maybe pausing, just pausing in the tumble 'have-to' of her days.
