The Great Inspiration Again

Up all night again. It started with an urge to write a poem (which it must be said, I have never done before).

The next inspiration was then to retranslate the Heart Sutra based loosely on snippets from the movie Little Buddha, Thich Nhat Hahn‘s version, as well as Naichen Chen’s translation. I think my version is now much more accessible for westerners with all Sanskrit words and/or concepts either removed or explained. This contracted version also only takes up a single A4 page.

I hope there will be more inspirations during the day.


Just remembered I have sessions with my psychiatrist and occupational therapist today :-(

Hi J. I did and he was of the same opinion as you.

I also knew when I posted, but I thought it would be good to look at it from a humorous side. The things I get up to.

He did not think it was funny either :-(

Thank you for caring:hug:
