On a rare afternoon off of work and the farm, I made a trip to the Mission Valley to clear my mind. I stopped at the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas in Arlee. It was my son Michael who first "enlightened" me about the eightfold path in the design of the garden. I then made my way north to Mission Dam.

All The Stars In The Sky

Snow on the goat's coat looks like stars in the sky.

By the time I finish my milking and feeding chores, the stars are out and I get a chance to look at them and daydream. At the winter solstice, Orion  was laying on his side above the barn. Now he's standing upright above the pasture, and will soon disappear until next winter. Where does Orion go?
