I just came back from 11 days of traveling with my family, I really enjoyed catching up on the last couple weeks of posts, thank you!

Growing up in Washington, may I assume you've at least at one time been a Jimi Hendrix fan??
There was a 5 year span in my life, from 15 to 19, that I listened to him everyday. My sisters still haven't forgiven me! haha

This weeks themes reminded me of this song:
I hope he's finding his way through his mirrors somewhere...

Oh, yes, Jimi Hendrix! Thanks for the link to the song!

  • Zen teachers sometimes use the Ten Ox Herding Pictures to describe the path of awakening. Within this metaphorical framework, the ox symbolizes the secretive, unruly human mind.
