Autumn, Third Moon, six hands' day
"Master," I asked today, "Where are we going?"
My teacher looked at me with his usual grave expression. He didn't answer.
I thought about this. Maybe he didn't know? But he was a Gem's story. He had mastered the art of living. He knew what he was doing.
I had asked myself this question before. Why did wandering monks wander?
Because my teacher didn't answer, I started to think more deeply.
I thought I saw a flicker of a smile on my teacher's face. However, he slightly shook his head.
We continued walking, and I continued thinking about the question.
But my teacher remained silent. I became confused.
I thought he would again be silent, but after a few moments he spoke.
