Raven 39

The trees are in charge. Aren't they always in charge? What we forget, they are remembering.

THE NEW DISCUSSION LEADER
At the end of an evening meeting, Raven announced, "The Assembly Oak will preside tomorrow night."
Woodpecker said, "This I'll have to see."
Next night, Raven appeared at his usual place in the circle. Woodpecker said, "You said the Assembly Oak would preside tonight."
Raven said, "I'm here, but I've forgotten what I was going to say." (adapted from Robert Aitken, Zen Master Raven)
