Ten thousand flowers in spring,

the moon in autumn,

a cool breeze in summer,

snow in winter.

If your mind isn’t clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

I love this poem by Wu-men. For this to be the best season of your life, he pre-requisites: “an unclouded mind”.

I’m spending part of this weekend, getting some continuing education credits, studying/practicing mindfulness and its application to my work.

As a result, I get to spend time experiencing the best season of my life, with a clear head and heart..observing, mental noting, moment to moment, being fully present in a non-judgmental state!

During these turbulent times, I wish you a vacation from worry, a cool breeze, blue sky, a long weekend of carefree enjoyment with a peaceful unclouded mind. ¬Chris
