ADVICE TO MY CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN Notice the way stars seem to rustle when you see them from a field. Find the place where sunsets disappear, and visit it when you're sad. Listen to the breezes when they organize themselves and sing together. And keep your eyes on other faces. Notice the kindness that often blossoms in these faces like crowds of flowers. Be like water, just waiting and watching and choosing patience over chancy things like tenaciousness, and work with thoroughness and silkiness like water does, doing the singing and dancing of the universe with serenity and acquiescence. See mist as something special, and downpours too, and suffering also, because it causes understanding and flows beside us forever and ever.
