the simple life

"One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words." Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Chuang Tzu

The right way to go easy
Is to forget the right way
And forget that the going is easy.
- When the Shoe Fits, Chuang Tzu

What more can you ask for when you're seated comfortably with great company and great poetry at The Coffee Connoisseur?

(Besides better food and better drinks?)

Anyway, Chuang Tzu got some things right. There is no right way, there is no easy way.

But the right way doesn't mean the right way, if you read the poem rightly. There is no right way to begin a thing. The right way is found at the very end - when the shoe fits. Only when the shoe fits, then we know its right. The foot has to go in. Right.

Don't you just love poetry?
