Here at the frontier, the leaves fall like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians, there are still two cups at my table.


Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

The Japanese have a term, "ikigai" which means something one lives for, the purpose of life, the raison  d'etre.

Below is an ad depicting the purpose of living for a handful of Taiwanese gentlemen. Enjoy.
