Seeing and Believing

'What shall I do?' asked Bardumon.

'Look' said Master Tze.

'I see the kowhai tree.'

'If you speak you cease to look,' said the Master.

'Surely, I can do two things at once.'

'To do two things is not to do one thing,' said Master Tze.

Master Tze was born during the biggest bombing raid ever unleashed against the North East coast of England. The commentator Mardi has suggested this is the reason Tze has such an appreciation of the fragility of life. Duckman, however, claims that while it is true that Tze was born during that raid the actual place of his birth was 12,000 miles away in Penrose, a suburb of Auckland, New Zealand.
