I was reminded of a few simple rules the other day in a post by a Zen teacher. Reading Joshu's koan "Wash your bowl" was actually a powerful moment for me. Reading through the list she posted, they were again like a stick across the shoulders.
I realized a few of them went just perfectly and amusingly with this drawing.
