Papananook posts this, this morning and it brings tears to my eyes.
I think of the journey of Robert Pirsig and his son, and how then his son was killed outside the SF Zen Center. How ironic is that, and yet, I realize it is to help us, with acceptance of life and death, rise and fall, as each of us lives with integrity and inserts quality into our lives as deeply as possible. Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. May we travel and live well, cultivating quality, and accepting the cycles of life and death, lies and truth. I suppose the only way to know truth is to see through and around the lies. Let us thank McPain for the cosmic lessons, the acknowledgment and acceptance of rise and fall.
