How can the buffalo get through the lattice window all but the tail? What is it that is difficult for me to let in?

                    David's dharma talk during Bare Bones retreat about falling down a well." How does the fully enlightened person fall into a well?" The koan brought to mind an old Maquire sisters song that goes ...Wella Wella, Wella waiting for the Bella to go ding dong, ding dong... We all fall into our own personal wells of suffering and David lends a hand to pull us out by sharing his own well stories.
