(no subject)

we all are aware of the reduced level of activity here, but even so....

looking back i saw that other than a dismissive reflection in the year in which the evil began, i haven't been posting my annual remembrance here....
or rarely posting much of even the smallest nothings here,
in fact spent four years not doing many of things i'd normally do when life is at base a generally enjoyable stress free garden bed for flowering whimsy
everything in the world isn't magically amazing,
but the baseline is back
and it feels like it may just being pushed upward like a growing mountain 
flame

the second line, undivided, shows the cauldron with things to be cooked in it. if its subject can say, "my enemy dislikes me, but he cannot approach me", there will be good fortune.



the fourth line, undivided, shows the cauldron with its feet broken; and its contents, designed for the ruler's use, overturned and spilt. its subject will be made to blush for shame.



the sixth line, undivided, show the cauldron with rings of jade. three will be great good fortune, and all action taken will be in every way advantageous.

the light goes out

who was

a most excellent and charming man, who brought the fun of knowledge for knowledge's sake to life and often spun (!) the best form of humor deftly; a  master of questions who, among his other gifts, was kind enough to show up to help me out the day i popped the biggest question one can pop, and who is gone too soon when we thought he might just be our companion infinitely?

i'll wager everything i've got on that.
