Their heart we do not know

Fish never tire of water; no one other than a fish knows their heart. 
Birds love the woods; no one other than a bird knows their heart. 
The same is true of those who savor reclusion.

(Kamo no Chomei, Tr. David Barnhill)



*The title of this post is a line from Bashō, the Japanese poet. 
I thank Michael Tweed for sharing the beautiful lines from Kamo no Chomei on Roxana Ghita's blog. 
And, it goes without saying, Roxana's post has been inspiring. 
The only difference is that my fish has no name yet.

Things I should know

Starea ta naturala (perfecţiunea) nu este nici entuziasmul, nici descurajarea. Starea ta naturală este liniştea. * Iubirea musei nu e pasională, e totală. Musa cunoaşte ceva asemănător adoraţiei, dar mai adânc, mai liniştit. Vă scriu din altă lume... * (Gellu Naum: Calea Şearpelui)
