Permanently Impermanent, by Mary Gow

“Permanently Impermanent,” pen and color pencil by Mary Gow

Those were two words that stuck with me, spoken by Jill, the leader and founder of a kayaking retreat held near her 400 acre plot of scenic land near Jenner, California.

In a weekend of walking meditation, kayaking, and eating mostly in silence, there’s time to reflect on “permanently impermanent.”

The first time I heard it I thought “What a great bumper sticker!”

And I’ve turned off my inner critic long enough to share this doodle with you.
