On the Eight-Fold Path


On the Eight-Fold Path


Look with a level gaze.

Walk facing traffic.

Talk as if you were being overheard by monks with begging bowls.

Take the path that goes into Frost’s woods.

Earn your living in order to give away oranges.

Make certain you remember lilies of the field, not Lord & Taylor.

Observe how the world is folded like an envelope.

Focus the camera while you step away.
