What does it matter, the new year, the old year?
I stretch out my legs and all alone have a quiet sleep.
Don't tell me the monks aren't getting their instruction.
Here and there the Nightingale is singing;
the highest Zen.

Happy New Year to you and D, dear Rel!! Finally taking a break from cleaning and decluttering to catch up with all my bloggy friends:-)

Enjoying the "now" moment is something I want to strive for in this new year. xoxo

Be here now. The most important lesson, but sometimes so hard to remember.
