Visited my friend in the hospital who's condition has gotten worse. It struck me that watching the suffering of others can almost dampen one's own spirit.
Luckily it just made me tired by the end of the night but even this tiredness is uncommon and may signify some slight imbalance.
This strikes me as something to be mindful about.
Unfettered at last, a traveling monk,
I pass the old Zen barrier.
Mine is a traceless stream-and-cloud life,
Of these mountains, which shall be my home?
