Small is Beautiful, Nothing is More Beautiful.

I have decided that it is not true
that "the Best can be the enemy of the Good"
But that it is true that the Great
is, indeed,  the enemy of the Big.

Kurt Vonnegut said (and i believe him)
that we were created to live smal
In small communities, with small needs
and small ambitions.

For years i have mentally fought
against those portions of the Tao Te Ching
that counsel constraint and restraint.
Think small, think not at all--
Do little, do nothing,

And all saints say
possess nothing to have everything.
the pearl of great price is actually gratis.
and love would be inexhaustible
if we only believed it was.
