Thursday April 24th.

Today was a busy day of errands and lists. I had to replace the bubble wrap cover for my pool and get a new pool vacuum. I just broke down and got the 'spensive one. I am so tired of replacing the screws and bolts on the cheaper version. For the love....why are things made so poorly? Such a royal pain.

Oh Well, there is is, soon my pool will be the perfect temperature, the bubble wrap also warms up the water anywhere from 10 to 15 degrees. in a few days I will not have to ease my way into the pool I will be able to dive right in! So, even though I am unhappy about the the vacuum I am VERY pleased about the big blue bubble wrap blanket for my pool.

Tao te Ching - Chapter 64

What is rooted is easy to nourish.
What is recent is easy to correct.
What is brittle is easy to break.
What is small is easy to scatter.

Prevent trouble before it arises.
Put things in order before they exist.
The giant pine tree
grows from a tiny sprout.
The journey of a thousand miles
starts from beneath your feet.

Rushing into action, you fail.
Trying to grasp things, you lose them.
Forcing a project to completion,
you ruin what was almost ripe.

Therefore the Master takes action
by letting things take their course.
He remains as calm
at the end as at the beginning.
He has nothing,
thus has nothing to lose.
What he desires is non-desire;
what he learns is to unlearn.
He simply reminds people
of who they have always been.
He cares about nothing but the Tao.
Thus he can care for all things.
