【As a Tree 】
Be as a tree. A tree that stands strong, no matter the wind or rain or the sun’s strong rays. For the wind does not define a tree. For the rain does not define a tree. For the sun does not define a tree. A tree stands tall -firmly, simply, rooted in soil. A tree offers leaves to summer winds and but bare branches to winter winds. A tree awaits the coming of the rain and waits out the drying of the rain. A tree receives of the sun and returns again glory to the earth. A tree is a tree and no more, despite the elements and despite their absence. Be as the tree and stand strong -despite what may, and despite what may not.

In aphorism, linguistics, proverb on 20110730 at 09:40

Every artist needs an agent.

Language is spectacular for the reason that it doesn’t need to make sense in order for it to have meaning.

The fool continue to water the shriveled plant.

The fool close their eyes to deny the darkness of night, as delusional in the absence of light as the ostrich who invites the night by burying his head in the sand at midday.

A fool farmer asks the rooster not to crow.

The fool silence the siren, suppressing a response in a deluded effort to deny a disaster.

Freedom is sacrificed in the name of safety and security, which are victim only to pride and honor.

《infinity》
She read the page, not the words.

She read the absence of words -the space between the written word.

The ink was too finite for her mind; she was drawn into the infiniteness of the abstraction that was space -the very space filling the cavity between the cracks of ink that penetrated the paper, but could not exploit its potential.

One need not disrespect a fool in order to not respect the foolish.

Nothing says desirable like untouchable.

In absence, imagination; in presence, surprise.

In aphorism, proverb on 20100220 at 15:25

Accept. Appreciate. Compliment. Support.

A judge is but a gavel-handed hypocrite.

Underestimating leads to overlooking.

To define success absolutely is to ensure absolute failure.

Who governs with a heavy hand bears its burden.

Where a garment conceals, in absence it reveals.

The hand to seize is not free to receive.
