If you’re gonna take something, take something cool!

Like the STARS!

Incidentally, my mom and I went to a lovely memorial service last night for the families of people who passed away in 2013. They gave each of us a star ornament with a picture of our loved one on it to hang on a remembrance tree.

It was very touching.

If I could steal a star to have my dad back, I totally would. I miss him so much.

He was a rock star to me.

The Moon Cannot be Stolen, A Zen Koan

Ryokan, a Zen master, lived the simplest kind of life in a little hut at the foot of a mountain. One evening a thief visited the hut only to discover there was nothing to steal.

Kyokan returned and caught him. “You may have come a long way to visit me, ” he told the prowler, “and you should not return empty-handed. Please take my clothes as a gift.”

The thief was bewildered. He took the clothes and slunk away.

Ryokan sat naked, watching the moon. “Poor fellow,” he mused, “I wish I could give him this beautiful moon.”
