There is work piled upon my desk and shelf; Problems solve themselves when in the sublime. Every Moment By Evan Mantyk Every moment is precious in life And each person with great meaning is rife Let them know that good and evil are real Before the future stamps its final seal. Etre ici pourquoi? (Translation Below) By Christophe Flechard Marcher sur le chemin pourquoi? Marcher, nager, dormir, voyager, sans connaitre la distance. Laissez tomber les attachements, ecouter la Loi. Ne pas tomber et perdre l`opportunite. Ne pas ecouter ou regarder les autres, seul soit meme peut decider. Why Be Here? By Christophe Flechard Why walk on the road? Walking, swimming, sleeping, traveling without knowing the distance. Letting go attachments, listen to the Law. Next step reveals truth. Don`t fall and lose the opportunity. Don`t look at others, Only you, yourself can truly decide.

The nearer two, in laurel too, and closest to them, are Boccaccio and an importunate Petrarca, holding some tome near two big globes—blue. Landino and Ficino are off to the far left; faces all aligned, three left, three right, in view. A solar quadrant and compass link to stars, while books on rhetoric and grammar link to prose; all are engaged in talk, though centuries apart.
