I just read an article written by poker legend Doyle Bronson. It started off with a "Doyalism" one of those pithy, down to earth sound bites that Doyle is noted for saying on occasion. "Don't be afraid to take a big step if one is required. You can't cross a chasm in two small jumps."

I was then expecting him to talk about big moves in poker. Instead the article was all about him traveling throughout the American west; the scenery, memories of a past trip with a now deceased friend, and imagining what the land was like when the Native Americans still wandered those plains.

It reminded me a bit of some of the Zen writing done by Marian Mountain or maybe Robert Pirsig's writing. Now if Doyle had talked about sitting zazen under a Montana redwood tree ... lol!
