"There's nothing to match curling up with a good book

when there's a repair job to be done

around the house."

Butterfly above Water

-- Citation from Dogen's BAIKA:
"This is the time for humans and heavenly beings
to turn towards attaining the way,
as the old Buddha's dharma wheel is turned
to the extreme limit of the entire world.

Even clouds, rain, wind and water,
as well as grass, trees, and insects,
do not fail to receive the benefit of this teaching.
Heaven and earth, and land
are vigorously turned by this dharma wheel."

I read with such pleasure the book written by Fabienne Verdier that I'm looking for more texts and illustrations...I discovered a beautiful website, with excerpts, poems, drawings and photos...you must have a look at it...You'll see the butterfly flying above the water...
It's called Early Women Masters...
