Loving Our Conflicting Stories



New Year’s first snow -- ah --
just barely enough to tilt
the daffodil

Basho (1644-94)

May we learn from our conflicting stories, and love the contradictions just as they are.

Blessings to you all in this New Year.

Yes! There is nothing wrong with contradictions - we should embrace them. Happy New Year to you!
