Ah, to be on the the Irish coast, high up and looking out across the great sea on a grey day though the mist of a certain morning...seeing history through wise old eyes and leaning gently upon my blackthorn shillelagh. Sea birds are calling, circling round the red sails of a Galway hooker near the far horizon. There's a friend out there heading home with a good catch. There will be fish to fry by sundown!

Too Lazy To Be Ambitious
by Taigu Ryoken
Too lazy to be ambitious,
I let the world take care of itself.
Ten days' worth of rice in my bag;
a bundle of twigs by the fireplace.
Why chatter about delusion and enlightenment?
Listening to the night rain on my roof,
I sit comfortably, with both legs stretched out.

Yet gifts arrive from Glennis Dolce, and Teddy is as surprised as he is grateful. Me too :-->

Three Canes
"Cora Cane needs a fresh coat of paint, but the other two hard wood ones match perfectly and can be used one at a time or both at once!
