On leaving summer behind for more uncertain seasons
Jack Kornfield likes to tell the story of someone trying to call out Buddhist monk Ajahn Chah on his obvious attachment to his favorite teacup. "The teacup is already broken," Chah says. I've had cause to think about death quite a bit due to this and that happening, and that's what I try to tell myself about it. The cup is already broken. In the meantime, you'd be a fool not to enjoy your tea.
