The bamboo in its simplicity expresses its usefulness. 
          Man should do the same.                                ~Kensho Furuya

everything changes, everything is related, pay attention

Every particular in nature, 

a leaf, 

a drop, 

a crystal, 

a moment of time 

is related to the whole, 

and partakes of the perfection of the whole.

                                                      ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

winter color

one kind word can warm three winter months
