‘As we are now’

‘As we are now’

[reading leaves and counting waves at the deserted Ross Island (Andman)]

***
Two birds, fast bound companions,
Clasp closes the self-same tree.
Of these two, the one eats sweet fruit;
The other looks on without eating.
Mundaka Upanishad (translated from Sanskrit
by Robert R. Hume, The Thirteen Principal Upanishads)
