    Awens to All:

    My 2021 Imbolc 3X3 Triad of Wisdom is durived from Words of Wisdom from the Memoir Book “Encounters” by Orai Fujikawa Sensei-San.

    I originally met him at the December 8th, 2008 Citizens for Kyoto Accord demonstration at the Vancouver Central Museum when I got to see him make a Speech about Protecting the Environment from the Buddhistic Point of View.

    In the years since, I have become one of his Devotees becoming his regular Email Pen Pal. This is mainly because Orai Sensei-San has shown Respect to my Writings, Opinions and Philosophies.

    During the Pandemic, he got together his Memoir and I had the Honor of being the One to Buy the FIRST COPY. Since he has been Respectful of my Writings, Poems and Essays, I am being Respectful of His.

    I read it over and instead of posting onto the Internet a Review of the Book, I decided to write a 3X3 Triad Poem and making it my First 3X3 Triad of 2021 by E-Publishing it on the Morning of Imbolc Feb 1st.

    It Goes:
