POTD: The Big Oh

The Big Oh
Bozeman, Montana
2018

On my walk during a recent spring snowstorm the heat from a sewer hole cover¬† formed and interesting circular shape. (I originally called it a sexist name–manhole cover–because that’s what I learned back in the dark ages. But somewhere along the line of progressing towards gender equality this name, like many other, got changed. After all why should men have all the fun accessing sewers.)

  1. In Zen, Enso is a circle that is hand-drawn in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create. – Wikipedia

    I love Enso circles.

    1. I am not a Buddhist but it would seem to me that an Enso-like shape (a symbol of perfection) arising from a sewer cover would fit right in with the Zen view of the dichotomy (or lack of) between good and bad.
