Morning Randoms

The leafless cherry
old as a toothless woman,
blooms in flowers,
mindful of its youth.
-- Matsuo Basho

La recherche de l'absolu ne doit pas sacrifier ce qui la fait vivre.
-- Robbert Fortin (1946-2008)

The day when homeowners devote an entire room in their houses to a library is probably a thing of the past.
Paul L. Martin

Only the hand that erases can write the true thing.
-- Meister Eckhart

A cappy hamper descends
on the cocky roast of Maine,
falling, in one swell foop
into the prior batch.
-- an unapologetic wordplayer, unable to stop :)

Live simply
Love generously
Care deeply
Speak kindly

Wheatgrass is indigestible to humans--
you have to juice the blades and drink it.
It's dark green and it tastes awful
but has an abundance of vitamins, minerals, enzymes,
protein and chlorophyl & contains every
amino acid, vitamin and mineral necessary for
human nutrition. My cats love chomping on it.
Personally, I can't get past the taste.

Some people seek to profit from any disaster.
Last month, the housing crisis.
This month: the swine flu 'epidemic'
"How to Profit Off Swine Flu"
What a mindset. :(

Notes for next week:
uprootedness in culture;
chosen ideological homes;
soil analysis for the veggie garden.
Traduire le livre d'Ani Choying Drolma;
get my energy back!

Good news. S. will come home from the hospital tomorrow!
Double Yay!!!
