SHAMBHALA SUN MARCH 2009 45 If you have a home, leave your home. If you have beloved ones, leave them. —Dogen Zenji There is a cerTain hour every day, although it rarely lasts for just one hour, when i most want to leave home. i see the faint blush of morning light under my eyelids. i hear the dog begin to patter on the parquet in the next room. i feel the inescapable weight of the morning routine descend upon me. My husband sleeps on, undisturbed. it’s up to me to begin. There is the dog to attend to. The coffee to make. The breakfast to assemble. The grumpy daughter to wake and push through her morning’s grim reluctance. The lunch to pack, the dishes to put away. Then the walk to school, the weeds to pull, the clothes to wash and dry. The mil- lion, billion pieces of everyday life to steer and clear, the Karen Maezen MIller is a student of nyogen roshi and a priest at the Hazy Moon zen Center in los angeles. She is the author of Momma Zen: Walking the crooked Path of Motherhood.
