A withered tree 枯木 ...


A wise man saw a monk sitting under a tree
and hurried over to ask
"I have been searching for the meaning of life
can you give me some answers?" 

...
"Must everything have a purpose ?" 
Monk replied
...
"I think Certainly, otherwise why are we living !" 
Wise man answered
...
and after a long pause ...
the monk said the following and left ...
"I think you have been thinking too much"
...

I like this photo very much, Wong. The monk was right: we think too much instead to live our life, to enjoy it. The simplest things are the best! Why complicate them?
