“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Well, we've moved so my shrine has been relocated. Also, my father died a couple of days ago which prompted a couple of additional changes.

Hello all, I am new to the forums. A bit more zen-oriented, but nonetheless here it is. :namaste:

Image

Image
I was born naked.
My beloved parents
kindly gave me a name.
When I reached twenty
I thought "a name is a chain,
I want to abandon it".
Whoever I questioned
No one answers me.
When I hear the wind in the pines
I get an answer.

I'm sorry about your father, Hickersonia.

Humble and lovely shrine there.

I'm not too sure, I got it over at Buddhagroove. I think it may be Chinese, possibly Japanese. Again not too sure. Also, I looked and they don't sell it on the site anymore :shrug:

This is my shrine. I have a scent diffuser rather than incense burner due to my wife's asthma.

My son seemed to appreciate it, and my wife got a laught out of it (which makes it all worthwhile).
I did but did not do as good a job as you! Next year, I hope to do a small tabletop Buddhist and nature Christmas tree!
