Yes, They Ain't

One of the CNAs (Certified Nurses Assistants) who gave compassionate care during my recent brief hospital stay is a Japanese woman who name (transliterated into English ) is one letter off from that of one of my favorite Zen poets.(favored more for his own compassion than for his poetry)   As i waited to be wheeled out of the hospital i suggested that Transport was taking a very long time to get to me but perhaps that was just my own impatience to be home.  She cautioned patience and suggested i reach calm.  I said, yes, i guess i do need to acquire a more zen-like attitude.  She said: "Hah, those guys!  Ain't they something."
