* thinkin' on D.H.L's woman who rode away sitting/sunnin' atop St.Cat's looking east along Chesil t'wards Portland breezes and buzzin' bees attend my body a cawin' of crows ? i have ascended to heaven via the hillside of sheep who will never pass thru the kissin' gate & all i can find to say is oh my god oh my God OH MY GAWD ! * the breezes blow the gate before me rattles & my skin is grazed by the sun i am an offering to all that is a part of all that is.... RABENNAH KEBIR !* * * * * * * * * * * * * *

"THE SUN HE IS ALIVE AT ONE END OF THE SKY. AND THE MOON LIVES AT THE OTHER END. AND THE MAN ALL THE TIME HAVE TO KEEP THE SUN HAPPY IN HIS SIDE OF THE SKY. AND THE WOMAN HAVE TO KEEP THE MOON QUIET AT HER SIDE OF THE SKY. ALL THE TIME SHE HAVE TO WORK HARD AT THIS. AND THE SUN CAN'T EVER GO INTO THE HOUSE OF THE MOON. AND THE MOON CAN'T EVER GO INTO THE HOUSE OF THE SUN, IN THE SKY." D.H.LAWRENCE (THE WOMAN WHO RODE AWAY - p61)

"COOKING IS TRANSFORMATION" THE "ACTIVITY" OF YEAST AND ZAZEN.
AM HAPPILY BACK ON ZAFU AFTER MANY YEARS OF DAMAGED LEFT KNEE AND HIP, CAUSED BY COUNSEL TO SIT THRU PAIN.THANX TO SITTING-BACK WITH NO EXPECTATION OF "ACHIEVEMENT" OR "GOAL", AND A "GOOD" YOGA PRACTICE, AT LAST, AM BACK ON CUSHION, ON THE GROUND, & FEEL GROUNDED MORESO, ONCE AGAIN. THANK GOODNESS WE NEVER STOP COOKING. YEASTS ARE ALL AROUND US IN THE AIR. AND A HOT POT ALWAYS ON OUR HEADS....WHAT IT MUST BE TO HAVE NO HEAD !.....7.30 A.M./ 22 / MARCH / 2012...."GOLDEN GOJI HERMITAGE".
