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.

Independance

“Come to the edge.' 'We can't. We're afraid.' 'Come to the edge.' 'We can't. We will fall!' 'Come to the edge.' And they came. And he pushed them. And they flew.”


Guillaume Apollinaire

It is amazing to me that months away from turning sixty I still struggle with some the same fears that I did when I was twenty. I thought somehow that that would change. My response may change but the fear of standing on the edge does not.

It's funny how somethings don't change.
