Lhasa Ascent

The most excellent virtue is the brilliant and calm flow of culture. Those with fine minds play in a clear lotus lake. Through this excellent path, a song line sweet like the pollen’s honey, May they sip the fragrant dew of glorious knowledge. ----- H.H. The l7th Karmapa

Moving Mountains

I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times… In life after life, in age after age, forever. My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs, That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms, In life after life, in age after age, forever. Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, it's age old pain, It's ancient tale of being apart or together. As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge, Clad in the light of a pole-star, piercing the darkness of time. You become an image of what is remembered forever. You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount. At the heart of time, love of one for another. We have played along side millions of lovers, Shared in the same shy sweetness of meeting, the distressful tears of farewell, Old love but in shapes that renew and renew forever. - Rabindranath Tagore *image Mt St Helens from Portland, Oregon

Naxi

I feel the Yangze River is Flowing with misery The Yangze River and many fertile lands growing from Ancient times until now myriad people have enjoyed its peaceful And warm favour But now it is just Beginning to flower with the sour waves we loathe the evil and the Demons which destroy. - Yang Ming Yi

In Cloud

Trailing on the wind, The smoke from Mount Fuji Melts into the sky. So too my thoughts – Unknown their resting-place. (Priest Saigyo, trans. Bownas and Thwaite)

Geographic Post

More and more, the creative class is becoming post-geographic. Location-independent. Office-agnostic. Demographers and futurists call this trend the rise of "the distributed workforce." Distributed workers are those who have no permanent office at their companies, preferring to work in home offices, cafes, airport lounges, high school stadium bleachers, client conference rooms, or some combination of what Florida calls the "no-collar workplace." www.businessweek.com/magazine/content/05_50/b3963137.htm
