Impermanence

Wandering for alms – 
weak, leaning on a staff,
with trembling limbs – 
I fell down right there on the ground.
Seeing the drawbacks of the body,
my mind was then
set free.
 
Therigatha 1.17

About Andy

Tea drinking, plant loving, meditating father of three small foxes. I came to Buddha dharma as a way of coping with long-term illness and found much more than I could have imagined. Using time-tested methods from Buddhism and elsewhere I am trying to make sense of life, experience and human relationships with varying amounts of success and connecting with others doing the same. Haiku and longer poetic forms are part of that journey.
