Wonder in a Drop of Water

Mountains and oceans have whole worlds of innumerable wondrous features. We should understand that it is not only our distant surroundings that are like this, but even what is right here, even a single drop of water.
– Dogen Zenji

One Comment on “Wonder in a Drop of Water

  1. One need not travel to distant shores to discover the
    beauty given to us by our Creator – the glow of the setting
    sun and the light of breaking dawn. Great waves break
    leaving their trails of glistening foam. It’s incumbent
    that we be thankful to the Giver of all gifts.
