"You are a bear lost in a forest, and there is an old woman with long gray braids baking pies for you, and your job is to keep following the smell of pie. That’s your job—learning how to keep turning toward what is most delicious to you."
Congratulations to Smith College class of 2013!
This is one of 46 blocks used to create Helen Frankenthaler’s mokuhanga print Madame Butterfly. It looks like all 46 blocks can be found at the National Gallery of Australia.
I wish that my woodblocks looked like Helen Frankenthaler’s.

“If you really want to become skillful in your thoughts, words, and deeds, you need a trustworthy friend to point out your blind spots. And because those spots are blindest around your unskillful habits, the primary duty of a trustworthy friend is to point out your faults—for only when you see your faults can you correct them; only when you correct them are you benefiting from your friend’s compassion in pointing them out.”
—Thanissaro Bhikkhu, “The Power of Judgment”
