Thirty-Six

36

If one wishes to shrink it
One must first expand it
If one wishes to weaken it
One must first strengthen it
If one wishes to discard it
One must first promote it
If one wishes to seize it
One must first give it
This is called subtle clarity
The soft and weak overcomes the tough and strong
Fish cannot leave the depths
The sharp instruments of the state
Cannot be shown to the people.

Hospital, Day 7

Today was a light day, no rehab to speak of, but another day of strengthening the body by rest, a little walking.  Very tired.  Almost no words all day, a lot of sleep..  Brought in a little candy and a flower.  Tomorrow will likely be another slow day.  It is all good,
