Whoops. If you don’t understand the above it’s because this was an unsuccessful attempt at using the “Press This” feature on WordPress.  Not sure what went wrong but 100% certain it did.

What I was trying to do was reblog a great post I found on Nhan-Fiction.  It contained a simple (Japanese?) saying…

FALL DOWN SEVEN TIMES, STAND UP EIGHT

…along with the beautiful characters/calligraphy in the original language.  The message spoke to me today as I’ve been falling down a lot lately. Like when I tried to “Press This” post for instance.

Mental note: Stand up. Again.

    • I love this! It takes the whole idea of persisting in the face of suffering into a transcendent, luminous place, and then lifts it back out again with joy. Breathtaking. Thanks Karen.
