Here is a short myth set in an ancient Japan that never was (but could have been), with monks that never were (but might have been), and journeys toward enlightenment (which may yet be). Here you will find monks and shrines; love and enlightenment; and no few stones, streams, and sutras.
Perhaps, somewhere in the midst of all this, you will also find tranquility.
