Tat Soi Soon

Tat Soi
I planted seeds today, and i think i'm ready to study Chinese.
Tat soi, pok choy, Chinese cabbage, and a stirfry mix of greens. My goal this year is to eat Brassica every day--broccoli, cabbage, kale, and these Chinese vegetables.

These greens like it cool. The ice cubes in the soil thawed yesterday. The tat soi should be ready to eat by the end of the month.

When we learn to meditate, it doesn't take long for us to harvest our first insight--whatever that might be. We might begin with little insights about our daily life--mundane insights. This is the "good idea" sort of insight. Just by relaxing our minds, creativity can surface. We get a new angle on the people and problems in our life.

For some of us, this is enough. It's sort of like using your new computer to play only computer games. Your mind is very powerful and capable of seeing deeply into the nature of the world.

But we start where we are. Harvesting little insights about our life. And soon, i'll be harvesting tat soi.
