Take your Daemon out to dinner or it will dine on you

“Sometime in the 80s or 90s, I saw a bumper sticker on a VW bus. I stopped dead when I saw it but the moment I turned away and headed up the trail toward Muir beach, I forgot what it said. I often remember it, but differently. What I believe the yellow letters on a once vibrant green background said, “Take your shadow out to dinner or your shadow will eat you.” It’s been important to me so I’ll never forget it.”

SETCHO’S VERSE
The wild duck! What, how, and where?
Baso has seen, talked, taught, and exhausted
The meaning of mountain clouds and moonlit seas.
But Jo doesn’t understand – “has flown away.”
