February 18th

"One day while walking through the wilderness a man stumbled upon a vicious tiger. He ran but soon came to the edge of a high cliff. Desperate to save himself, he climbed down a vine and dangled over the fatal precipice. As he hung there, two mice appeared from a hole in the cliff and began gnawing on the vine. Suddenly, he noticed on the vine a plump wild strawberry. He plucked it and popped it in his mouth. It was incredibly delicious!" - Zen Story

    wonderful quote…so whimsical…a bit like a shaggy dog tale leading you on and on and then surprising you.

    I suppose it means even in the darkest hour life can offer some relief even it’s only a strawberry.

    I wonder why he didnt through the strawberry at the mice to either dislodge them from the cliff face or entice them to have a munch on it. Love the pic dude, cant wait for tomorrows!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I thought the same thing Tommy, I thought it was going to end up being like no matter what, never ever give up like the cartoon of the pelican who is swallowing the frog who is grasping the the pelicans neck in a stranglehold.
    Zen is very bendy, i like it.
