Zen monks and haiku poets spoke of life in terms of a transient 'floating world' (ukiyo), or of a dream that vanishes. In the traditional Buddhist view, our corporeal existence is one which happening gives way to happening, illusion follows illusion, and all is no more than phantasm, void of substance.
katte ima iku
I borrow moonlight
for this journey
of a million miles
Written by the haiku poet Saikaku, as he was about to die on the eight day of the eight month, 1730, at the age of seventy.
This album is dedicated to the memory of Drew Menzies, colleague, inspiration, friend.
