  1. the perfect image to end the year. and title!

    “To enjoy life’s immensity, you do not need many things.”
    Ryokan

  2. thanks R, and for the Ryokan too—marvelous quote that!

  3. the whole poem is perhaps fitting…

    My house is buried in the deepest recess of the forest
    Every year, ivy vines grow longer than the year before.
    Undisturbed by the affairs of the world I live at ease,
    Woodmen’s singing rarely reaching me through the trees.
    While the sun stays in the sky, I mend my torn clothes
    And facing the moon, I read holy texts aloud to myself.
    Let me drop a word of advice for believers of my faith.
    To enjoy life’s immensity, you do not need many things.
