Zen Story

A rich man, fond of felines, asked a famous zen ink painter to draw him a cat.

The master agreed and asked the man to come back in three months.

When the man returned, he was put off, again and again, until a year had passed.

Finally, at the man's request, the master drew out a brush, and , with grace & ease, in a single fluid motion, drew a picture of a cat - the most marvelous image the man had ever seen. He was astonished and then he grew angry. "That drawing took you only thirty seconds! Why did you make me wait a year?" he demanded.

Without a word, the master opened up a cabinet, and out fell thousands of drawings - of cats.
