About

Everyday Zen attempts to bring to surface the smallest of things that have a profound influence on most people. Let there be no boundaries of lies or righteousness but look society right in the face, question authority.

    Hi Kabir.
    Thank you so much for following my blog Fur Out the Closet, which led me to yours.
    I like the philosophy of “look society right in the face, question authority”. So many people just accept things at face value and never challenge authority.
    All the best,
    Emy

      It’s my pleasure 🙂 You’re absolutely right, we must try and think for ourselves rather than being under the influence of others. Thanks so much for stopping by and following 🙂 Have a pleasant day!

      Hi Nick, nice of you to drop by to read and comment, I appreciate it. To answer your question, Tanka is a genre of classical Japanese poetry, now becoming popular as a short form of poetry in English as is Haiku which is written in 17 syllables or less as opposed to Tanka which uses anywhere between 12 to 31 syllables arranged in about 5 lines. Both remain untitled most of the times, unless written in sequence or string. It’s nice to have met you Nick, I welcome the idea of developing new friendships and look forward to visiting your blog more. Have a pleasant Sunday! 🙂

    Hello, apologies for not appreciating the follow sooner. Thanks! I came by here and looked at Tanka (thinking…what??) then I read your explanation of what it entailed. (Glad I didn’t ask you again, like the newbie I am, ha!) I enjoy Haiku, so I think I will enjoy this. Following, and its a pleasure to meet you. Oh…and questioning authority is a good point, but one needs to ask the right questions…..don’t you think?

      Oh it’s no bother. Thanks so much for dropping by! And there’s a lot more to what a tanka can be, i could elaborate but think its better to give you this helpful link http://www.ahapoetry.com/Bare%20Bones/wffles4.html . thanks for the follow, it’s nice to meet you as well, i look forward to reading more of what you share on your blog 🙂 and yes, you’re very right, it’s the right questions that gets them thinking… and that’s what we want, isn’t it?

        Wow, now THIS is why I love the Internet! I read the link you sent about Tanka, and I really need to study it some more and have a practice with it. The form of it is kind of like a miniature short story, in the way it shifts perspective, time, descriptive elements, etc. Haiku of course, encompasses the present moment, which is (in my head) quite piercing and direct. Thanks for sharing this. 😀

    I always have and always will question authority and I find it quite humorous when someone asks “are you questioning my authority?”. Of course my “always” response is “YES”
    Found you –Following you– Come look me up
