Life, it's happening.
Too much to write about the last few weeks. Will get around to it soon, honest.
Right now, it's time for a few words from Lao Zi, since you know, we should all contemplate the Dao from time to time.

The highest virtue is like water.
Water is good at benefiting all things, but does not compete with them.
It stays in the palces that others disdain;
this is why water si the closest to "Dao".
He should love to sdwell in the lower places [as water];
he should be as deep and profound [as water];
he should be faithful in his friendship [as water];
he should be sincere [as water] in his speech;
he should be in good order [as water] in his governing;
he should be competent [as water] in handling things;
he should act accordingly [as water] in his activities.
It is because he does not compete [as water],
that he makes no mistakes.
