Once the snow melts

Where I live is snow country. In winter, it’s not uncommon to see ten or so centimetres of the white stuff on the ground as you pull up to your local supermarket. If you come late in the day, however, sometimes you see just how badly other people have parked. Sometimes people are parked exactly on top of the lines they are meant to park between.

Given enough time, those lines become visible, and those able to park between them do so. You may look like a fool once the snow melts, but you can’t blame those who didn’t park well, they were just doing the best they could with the information they had at the time.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.


Sign up to the weekly Mountains of Wisdom newsletter, follow me on social (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Clubhouse, all @kiwiyamabushi), or send me an email via the link below to stay in touch.


Tim.
