Notes of a lifelong learner and perpetual beginner on martial arts, mindfulness, Chinese calligraphy…and many, many cups of tea.

Unusual always happens within the usual!

Yesterday, I accidentally said something wise. Someone warned me that this would start happening.

Someone asked me what I was doing for the weekend. I replied, “Run, cook, gongfu, shufa…the usual.” When they asked, “Are you gonna sprinkle any unusual?” I replied “First I must have the usual, only then is unusual possible. Unusual always happens within the usual.”

Think about it….to catch the magical fish someday…the fisherman must first row out in the morning.
