Did you ever hear of the "Ten Thousand Things?" The Kyoto Journal puts it elegantly: "a Buddhist expression representing the dynamic interconnection and simultaneous unity and diversity of everything in the universe." More simply; I think of it as the 10,000 things that are always around us, wherever we are. If only we could bother to look; and see.
I thought of this today, driving up to West Plains for the quarterly car service - an hour's drive through pretty country with so many NEW things to see every time we go.
How is it possible to ever be bored?
