'our bodies are given life from the midst of nothingness. existing is where there is nothing is the meaning of the phrase, form is emptiness. that all things are provided for by nothingness is the meaning of the phrase, emptiness is form, one should not think that these are two seperate things', from hagakure- the book of the samurai by yamamoto tsunetomo, cutting my bamboo down in the garden last night i was aware of mr and mrs blackbird getting very agitated, the dogs were out with me and the birds were landing on the lawn and getting chased off by the boy's, strange, can't just be after worms after i had raked?, then i saw it, birds nest in the bamboo, day old chick and an unhatched egg, hanging at a dangerous angle after i had chopped the supporting branches away, shit, i picked the nest up and wedged it into the middle of the bamboo, got the dogs in and watched from the kitchen window, mrs blackbird was straight back onto the nest, emptiness is form.
