It is quite possible as you read this you will engage in ‘space shifting’…I did while putting together this post. As you read, notice how you shift to different spaces and focus and concern…it is interesting to observe…

…Time can elaborate space so delicately…we connect visually, with taste buds and our hearts…a tree of life infuses us, melds us with the earth we are made of, the sky we breathe, the fluid sweetness of what flows through us…we ripen, evolve and fade…it is the nature of all…

Sun drawn, blood fed,
The blooms, the full
Froth of first warmth,

Will you walk with me,
Even dance,
As cloud with sky,

That close, our lips
Part freely,
We breathe together,

How can we not
Touch forever?
The freshest wind,

The falling blossoms,
That close,
The close of day.

I've also received TSK instruction from the late, Carolyn Pasternak of the Odiyan Retreat Center... As a volunteer for the past several years, I've been curating the often TSK focused, CCI Facebook page at...

    Reading this one might question why there is no cherry blossom represented…?
