Barn's burnt down --
I can see the moon.
-Mizuta Masahide (水田 正秀?, 1657–1723)
(Winter Moon over Farm Field - Jill Battaglia)
My dear friend sent me this quote when one of the slates of my life was being wiped clean. When I read the words of this tiny poem then, I saw the barn as my marriage and the definition of my life that I had held up to that time.
