121. the first six days

the guru went into the desert to find peace.

on the first day, all he found was sand.

on the second, he found some interesting rocks.

on the third, he found it was really hard to go three days without food and water.

on the fourth, he found himself wondering if this was a bad idea.

on the fifth, he found himself.

and on the sixth day, he found that it was impossible to find something specific in the desert, especially something as elusive as peace, and that maybe it was better to just look around and take what you got.
