January 16th

A monk that was traveling to meet Nansen, met the master cutting weeds with a sickle along the road. He asked about the way to Nansen, and was shown the WAY. Not knowing it was Nansen, the monk asked, “What is the way to Nansen?” Nansen raised the sickle, saying, “I bought this sickle for thirty cents.” The monk said, “I did not ask about the sickle, I asked the way to Nansen.” Nansen answered, “I use it to full enjoyment.” - Zen Mondo
