Zen Trash

On my drive into work this morning, I stopped in traffic on the highway. I looked to the side of the road and I saw a discarded box of juice.  At first when I see litter, I think litter.  Then, I see the that the brand of the juice box is Oasis. So then, I think of an oasis, which is a much more pleasing idea than the idea of litter.  However, I cannot see the whole word Oasis on the box, but I am familiar with the brand, so I just thought, oasis. When I look at the box, the O is hidden.  What I see on the box is “asis” as in “as is”.  That was my Zen reminder.  As is. Then traffic moved.
