All Shall Be Well

On this day in 1373 Julian of Norwich began writing down an account of a series of visions that occurred during an illness.

I have to admit she seems crazy as a bedbug to me.


There’s something Hakuin like in her, as well, another bedbug crazy wise person.

And, her “all shall be well” echoes for me Yunmen’s sublime and haunting koan, “everyday is a good day…”



Lovely, in that great leap of heart way…

Happy birthday, Tawl!
