The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

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.

Nearly Spring

Of green
dreams in winter,
thawed brooks purl anew.
Phantom sunflowers touch the sky

no vitamin D

sunshine is a myth
