I sit here this evening with papers in files, notes to be reviewed, more questions to ask and soon there will be a report to write.
Feels good. While I have learned to adjust to almost anything, I really miss working. It is good for the soul. Hopefully there will be more of this work where it came from because if this becomes a real "gig" I might be able to fill in the Daruma that has been sitting in the window for a long long time.
This feels so so good.
So here is how this all works.
Bodhidharma was a Buddhist monk who lived during the 5th/6th century AD. He is traditionally credited as the transmitter of Ch'an (Zen) to China. Little contemporary biographical information on Bodhidharma is extant, and subsequent accounts became layered with legend. According to one tradition, Bodhidharma gained a reputation for, among other things, his practice of wall-gazing. Legend claims that he sat facing a wall in meditation for a period of nine years without moving, which caused his legs and arms to fall off from atrophy. Another popular legend is that after falling asleep during his nine-year meditation he became angry with himself and cut off his eyelids to avoid ever falling asleep again.
So As I have been told, you make a wish or set a goal and color in an eye. When the wish or goal is met you color in the other.
I am so so close.
