Let Go

If you realize that all things change,
there is nothing you will try to hold on to.
If you aren’t afraid of dying,
there is nothing you can’t achieve.

Trying to control the future
is like trying to take the master carpenter’s place. 
When you handle the master carpenter’s tools,
chances are that you’ll cut yourself. 

 – Tao Te Ching, translated by Stephen Mitchell

This poppy is nearly spent, but still it opens itself gladly to the new day

  1. Good morning, Pat. Just want to say that I really like your “new look”. The variety of pix at the top and the color really make the whole page become more alive. Thanks for the extra time and work.

    • Thanks Margaret Ann. I’m glad you like the change. I am still working on it . . . I have way too many categories, and I’d like to add a gallery. Alexa Chipman, who danced at the DSC Convocation in Chicago is helping me. She is a wonderful graphic artist. So talented!!

  2. “This poppy is nearly spent, but still it opens itself gladly to the new day.” I not only love the vibrancy of this shot, but also the hope in your words – this is so much like life.
