I have seen many love to quote Dogen. I know Dogen can describe something eloquently but has Dogen described the present moment.

How can Dogen describe the present moment when he is long gone?

Dogs sniff other dogs butts.  They communicate in such a fashion, however odd it may seem to us.

One day in the park, before I had a chance to stop him, my dog stuck his cold wet nose up the back of a womans shorts.  Yikes !!

She rose up straight on the balls of her feet, and shouted, *whoooooo* !!

Fortunately, she was a dog lover.  I profusely apologized, and she smiled broadly and said, *Thats okay, I have dogs too*.
