Painted Hunger and evaporation



no rush, no bother, no stream
just one bright puddle
drying up in the sunlight

Painted Hunger and brassing the four Bramha Viharas

“without painted hunger you never become a true person” – Dogen

Emptiness of words, swallows and spits don’t know mind

when will my unauthenticity ever end?

I am unskillful but willing

I have no idea what effort is- all seems inadequate

the suffering I’ve caused is immeasurable.


The Four Bramha Viharas– Metta, Karuna, Mudita, Upekkha or lovingkindness, compassion, sympathetic joy, serenity


Exposed metal where paint or plating has worn off.

Many metal camera bodies are made of brass, usually painted with black enamel or plated with chrome or nickel. With age and use the finish can chip or wear off, particularly on the top of the pentaprism hump or on corners, revealing the brass underneath. A heavily brassed camera suggests that the camera has seen commensurately heavy use. The term is also used more generally for surface damage which reveals any metal underneath, even if that metal is not brass

fortis fortuna adjuvat- “fortune favors the brave”
