Truly Rich

If you realize that you have enough,
you are truly rich.
If you stay in the center
and embrace death with your whole heart,
you will endure forever.

--Tao Te Ching by Lao-tzu, translated by Stephen Mitchell

I think that means we should enjoy just a little more centered sliding around life's curves; mountain curves, underwater cave curves, rocket parablas, rounded furniture, high stress work days that get worse, and of course the natural curves that need no name.

Darling daughter on the verge of crawling, rolling to and fro, lunging, and occasionally crawling backwards, an exciting time. She talks too, calls me by name.
