Glassy skies and frosted everglades.. Candy store lights of Bariloche nights. Clean and present soul, shall I ever see such things again?

Bariloche, Argentina

Wield your phenomena, Life. Go on and on for all days. Stay, last. Prolong is my request.

517: That Time in Gion

Find renewal daily in the ordinary. Reconcile with the risk of correction. Seek astonishment in the world and by that nectar be thriven. Cleverness yields no such nourishment.

Gion, Japan 2017

Blunt is simplicity, meandering is complexity.

Absolutely himself. Surrendering to his element.

The span, it provokes as ever. Calls you onward, inward.

O presence and depth, unhesitant further.

Enthral the skin
Drench the mind in peace,
the soul in Ecstasy.

513

Be resourceful with your action. Success is a reality that needs to be acted on.

Patrick King

512

Never under compulsion, out of selfishness, without forethought, without misgivings. No surplus words or unnecessary actions. Let the spirit in you represent a man. Taking up his post like a soldier and patiently awaiting his recall from life. Needing no oath or witness. Cheerfulness. Without requiring other people’s help. Or serenity supplied by others. To stand up straight, not straightened.

Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

511: World Book Day

When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes.

Erasmus
