It is one

this life and this death

and also none

speaks Master Zen

but if it is as he says

then he does not know


The Georgics

might contain clues to

living life

on this Earth

Vires acquirit eundo

You can work it out

    Yes, I can work it out. But I’m a little surprised to find it here – it’s the motto on the official coat of arms of the City of Melbourne, where I lived for a great part of my life. (Of course, it was a very good idea to finally go from there, even strength-giving….)

    “And what is “truth”? Is truth unchanging law? We both have truths. Are mine the same as yours?” nimirum habemus pergentibus That’s the best I’ve come up with so far.

    Nicely written!
