Pascagoula, Mississippi, One Year After Hurricane Katrina

The damage of 2005's Hurricane Katrina has had 10 years now to be repaired, and the national consciousness seems to have moved on to other disasters and other calamities.  But each of these incidents are expressions of the same impermanence, the ever-changing nature of the universe and its tendency to constantly transform from those forms that we recognize to those that we don't, even while we're blind to everything's true and basic potentiality.   We should just awaken to this truth, as Japanese Zen Master Ikkyu once said; how and where do not matter.
