  • If we keep treading air

    "If we keep treading air
    we remain aloft.
    It is only when we pause
    to reflect on treading air
    that we fall."

    - Coyote Rinpoche

      Well, MHenry brought me back to this poem again....Had you been watching cartoons when you thought of this poem? It is just so funny.

        It just came out of nowhere, like most of the things I write that are appealing. I feel I can barely even take credit.

      And clever and insightful. Not to mention profound. I had to come read it again myself. Or should I say study it.

          If only Coyote had bought a hand glider from Acme.

            Exactly. Hindsight is better than no sight at all.

          Grant...I like this. That's exactly what happened in the cartoon but it's very philosophical. I was wondering about the reference at the bottom. Coyote rinpoche.

            It's a Tibetan Buddhist honorific ironically attributing this piece of (faux?) wisdom to Wile E Coyote as if he were some kind of quotable spiritual authority.

          I always thought Coyote had a little Buddha in him... nicely penned, granthayes Rinpoche.

            He is my patron un-saint; my side-tracked Wepwawet; my mentor-in-failure.
