Open Plains

In the mountains of Nepal I once saw a water buffalo being killed for food by a man using the blunt end of an ax.

The buffalo did not run and did not go down. It just stood there taking blows to the head. Like it knew something I didn’t.

Beyond the mind there is a vivid emptiness. It may be visited, but is unaffected by our day to day actions, like a buffalo that never goes down.

  1. That is a haunting image. Most unsettling — which of course I offer as a compliment.
