i read that thich nhat hanh says: "it's a mistake to say that the wind is blowing or the rain is falling. what is wind if it is not blowing? what is rain if it is not falling?" the falling is the rain, the blowing is the wind.
also, on a totally unrelated note, who the hell is the guy below? an author? a musician? your grandfather? such a familiar face, and none of us can seem to place it.
