“Sign on the window says “Lonely”
Sign on the door said “No Company Allowed”
Sign on the street says “Y’ Don’t Own Me””
(Bob Dylan in Sign on the window)
“The Goddess of Wealth
…who sits on the Red Lotus flower
offers the fair flow of water,
affluence of paddy harvest,
…name and fame,
…lots of wealth and property;
she also always offers longevity
…for those who are not deceptive and trickery!”
(V.K. Kanniappan translation from Tamil Nalvazhi)
“In the end, a finished polished piece…
Makes the artist, happy and at peace.
The work is finally done…
What hard work, finished-Now
feelings of enjoyed fun.”
(M. Gale in A painted house is like a poem)
When a zen master ask you: where are you going to buy your ticket?
How will you respond?
