monkey magic

I need a retreat, relief, from all the chattering monkeys in my mind. Will seriously look into them (one?) for my next extended vacation. A retreat, that is. My life is pretty much one of seclusion anyway, maybe I should delve into it a bit more deeply :)

I Love this Rose,

Chattering Monkeys of your mind! I just know there is a song in there somewhere? At least a good subject matter for a song! ♥
The picture is wonderful too!

Thanks fantasy - I am working on a longer post. The picture is from a new version of the series "Monkey Magic". The original "Monkey" was big in Australia, but I don't know if this new one made it to Oz.

In Buddhism, you can have a monkey mind. I'm kind of scatting here, so I'm probably off target - but it is when your mind runs around like a monkey up there, in there, wherever your mind is, not giving you peace. Mostly because you let it and encourage it to misbehave so! ;)

Scatting, but not scattered. Also, like a monkey swinging through the trees just grasping and grabbing to keep ourselves up. Not reflecting or discerning and certainly never the thought of just resting, sustained on the ground (OK, so real monkey's rest sometimes, maybe even on the ground: that's the metaphors funky breakdown).

Hey stu, I just got your comments. Inseperatable??? :D Grasping and grabbing, but also reflecting, but the reflecting is like the bright sun jab from a pane of glass - certainly not guaranteeing any clarity of vision...guess the hungry ghosts and I like it this way...
