Greetings kokoro
I hope you're having a cracker of a day!

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)
