The Gift of the Injury

In This Morning's Tea, Today's Practice on April 26, 2009 at 9:04 am

Patience. Empathy. Humility. Accepting assistance.

Acute injury, like the surrounding spring, is fertile ground 

for sometimes allusive qualities. 

I practice now, no cushion required. 

No set time to sit.

No books needed.

Acute injury rivets attention, and guides my awareness away from the peripheral. 

A nice cup of tea, Murchie’s Royal Alberta Museum, a lovely companion.

Oh, and crossword puzzles.

Being in the moment, absolute.
