Today was a good day. During the day, I took certain pictures for Esha related work, and thought they will all be bad and I will have to do the entire set again.. turns out, the rejection ratio was way, way lower than even my standard!

:-)

And for you, here is potpouri:



One day the moon,
and I
had the fight.
The moon
decided
to cut out my supply of moonbeams
and turned its face
the other side.

The moonbeams laughed
and so did I.
After a while, we noticed
the moon was smiling too!

This piece comes from a simple piece of wisdom: The moon might believe that the moonbeams come from itself, but in effect, they come from the sun. We might believe that the wisdom and intellect and love we radiate comes from within, but actually, it comes from the wisdom, intellect and radiance of other people. While there are other people to be intelligent, wise and loving - the sun is out in the sky!

So if a person's intelligence comes from without, you shouldn't hang with stupid people?

"We might believe that the wisdom and intellect and love we radiate comes from within, but actually, it comes from the wisdom, intellect and radiance of other people."

is it different - whats within 'us', and within 'other people'?
