Plain-Clothes Santa

A   L   O   H   A  !

" When we are humble

 everyone is a potential best friend 

and our generosity naturally grows.

 We want to do things, to help out. 

A wonderful Zen tradition 

is called "inji-gyo,"

 or secret good deeds. . .








- Secret good deeds.
 They are so much fun. 
In their doing 
you can't help but 
smile. "

Geri Larkin 
 "Tap Dancing in Zen"






As usual,
plain-clothes Santa
gave gift baskets
to indigents
on the Honolulu
streets,
and to the Mission.

Plain-clothes Santa
is a nice Jewish boy,
just like Jesus.










" Summer set
 lip
 to earth's bosom
 bare,

 And left the flushed
 print 
in a poppy 
there. " 

 Francis Thompson 
 "The Poppy," 1891

Scateboarding in biniki. Looks rather dangerous when you fall.

Life usually keeps me pretty humble.

I know that ramp! The plain-clothes Santa most likely isn't the lovely body with the trim figure...not many plain clothes on her. The flower is dancing! DrumMajor
