#9 - The Source
15 " x 22"
Too many steps have been taken returning to the root and the source.
Better to have been blind and deaf from the beginning!
Dwelling in one's true abode, unconcerned with that without --
The river ﬂows tranquilly on and the ﬂowers are red.
From "Ox Herding Poems" by Kakuan
