524: Serenity

Labels make a complex world simpler.

Adam Alter


Silence is a lesson learned from the many sufferings of life.

—Seneca, Thyestes, 309


Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.

  • Apollinaire

Shinjuku Gyoen, Japan 2017


Blunt is simplicity, meandering is complexity.

Ken Segall


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

Patrick King


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

Resilience – autonomic, psychic, somatic.

Flow – experiencing things as they are, in real time, rather than as they ‘should’ be.



The greatest remedy for anger is delay.
