PHOTOS of VENICE and FRANCE TEXTS to THINK ABOUT

 

 

Small lexicon

(words chosen in homage to Lao Tse
in his
Tao Te Ching)

THE TEN THOUSAND CREATURES: the living beings
THE HUNDRED FAMILIES: the human beings
THE PRINCE: the one who rules
THE MASTER: the one who knows
THE SERVANT: the one who serves
THE SAGE: the sage

 

A little note for fun...

- In Europe, living is getting harder and harder; unemployment, the decrease of the increase of purchasing power…
- Thatís true; itís impossible to satisfy any desire; we are going to end up having nothing more than the poor countries.
- Well then, letís be like them! Letís be content with reasonable things.
- You know, here as well as over there, everybody wants the same things; a kid will ever ask: ďMom, what are we having for dinner?Ē

(Praeco)

 

 

 

The Thought of the Day

by Serge Bassenko

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE TEN THOUSAND CREATURES
EAT WHAT THEY FIND

THE HUNDRED FAMILIES
WITH ART
DISPOSE THE FRUIT

THE PRINCE
WILLS HAVE A GOLDEN DISH

AND THE SAGE
HAS MADE AN EAR OF WHEAT
FROM A GRAIN
