sunk boat on a bay in Majorca
“All anxiety, all dissatisfaction, all the reasons
for hoping that our experience could be different
are rooted in our fear of death. Fear of death
is always in the background.
“As the Zen master Shunryu Suzuki Roshi said,
‘ Life is like getting into a boat that’s just about to sail
out to sea and sink.’ ”

I try to live like I really get this, but I keep thinking I can patch the boat.
