Engaging in the Way, in the life of continuous practice, means that we are constantly awakening with each new moment. Awakening is not a single event in time. Rather it is a continuous event through time. Basho wrote: Let me be called a traveler. He did not mention any destination. Just a traveler."

I know it's another Whisky River find, when I'm behind in 3 or 4 Paris episodes and should be spouting forth my own words, but it just seemed so APT, seeing I'm travelling later on today (it is today now possums, as Tuesday passed nearly two hours ago).
However, simple traveler that I am, I do rather have a couple of fixed destinations in mind. First...
Bristol to see mon cousin the lion stalker, and then the wonderful friends who took the above photo last time I was there... They make a fabulous cup of tea!
Then, London Jeeves (and don't spare the horsepower!), for a weekend of 'wholly this' moments, exquisite vegetarian fare with an equally as exquisite close friend and campaigner for women's literacy, champagne celebrations. To top this all off I shall be treated to HILARIOUS giggle time with Lulu who has somehow managed to find herself a job cooking in a kitchen that boasts an enormous white marble slab! I'll say no more... Except this - I may be bringing her back here to cook for me! She is an AMAZING chef, she would brighten up my kitchen no end, and I would of course have more time to paint!
To quote dear Lulu: "
Yes, yes! I feel the Paris Episodes would best be written with an awakened sense of humour...
See you all next Tuesday
