We join spokes together in a wheel,
but it is the center hole
that makes the wagon move.

We shape clay into a pot,
but it is the emptiness inside
that holds whatever we want.

We hammer wood for a house,
but it is the inner space
that makes it livable.

We work with being,
but non-being is what we use.
~ Lao tsu

When time is wasted on the superfluous and conversations are held to be 'politically correct' I seek the grounding of the wise sages - we seem to be lacking in them these days. Naples, FL


  1. Too many are looking at the building without understanding the space.

  2. Love the pic and the accompanying poem. Thanks for the reflection time.
