Stefan Ruiz – The Art Land

Close scrutiny is the governing principle of Minimalist art. Once you have seen the infinitely complex in the seemingly simple, you are far better equipped to observe the obviously complex.


May Sarton – Journal of Solitude

I think of the trees and how simply they let go, let fall the riches of a season,
how without grief (it seems) they can let go and go deep into their roots for renewal
and sleep. … Imitate the trees. Learn to lose in order to recover, and remember
that nothing stays the same for long, not even pain, psychic pain. Sit it out.
Let it all pass. Let it go

So predictable as to be the equivalent of silence

Load Test

There is a concurancy in transactions that is not
fully realized in the stateless inventory
that we do every afternoon

before taking our children to t-ball
or reading from a book

There is a user within the design methodology
who does not complete the transaction
before the abend or the core

is created and replicated
and never fully diagnosed.

John Ashbery

A poem that communicates something that’s already known to a reader is not really communicating anything

Good Earth Tea

I started drinking this tea while reading the Oprah Book Club selection of the same name.

The book was great – dark, cynical, big themed & simply written.

The tea however is even better – it makes me get all philosophical. I spend time thinking about how I interacted with people – I think about how I can improve my human relationships. I take things more seriously. I reflect.

Very healthy & I think I should continue drinking it every night – it will likly make me a better person.
