Enlightenment is like the moon reflected on the water.
The moon does not get wet, nor is the water broken.
Although its light is wide and great,
The moon is reflected even in a puddle an inch wide.
The whole moon and the entire sky
Are reflected in one dewdrop on the grass.

-- Dogen (Japanese Zen Master)

How absolutely beautiful!

A perfect pairing of picture and words!

And, wow, Joy's perfect posture is a reflection of her ability to move and stability while using her hands. (my uniquely weird perspective) Barbara
