even as these gulls
each arrow finds its own path
flying through the wind

Today’s thought for meditation on Carpe Diem Shuukan is the following from “the way of the bow” based on the e-book by Paulo Coelho:
[…] When the archer draws the bow-string, he can see the whole world in his bow.
When he follows the flight of the arrow, that world grows closer to him, caresses him and gives him a perfect sense of duty fulfilled.
Each arrow flies differently. You can shoot a thousand arrows and each one will follow a different trajectory: that is the way of the bow. […]
