December Quotes

“Deep at the bottom of the well no warmth has yet returned,
The rain which sighs and feels so cold has dampened withered roots.
What sort of man at such a time would come to visit the teacher?
As this is not a time for flowers, I find I’ve come alone.”

Su Shi, Visiting the the Temple of Auspicious Fortune Alone on the Winter Solstice

“The blank page gives us the right to dream.”
— Baston Bachelard

Journaling takes us on adventures of self-discovery that explore two different directions:

“Life is a narrative that you have a hand in writing.”

If any problems arise today, they will probably come out of being careless about something simple and normally no trouble at all. Carelessness is the chief threat to having things go smoothly. Even if only small things are lost, broken, or need to be redone, it can make tomorrow even more of a mess than today might be. Pay attention to details, take your time and do your best.
