"They say

a person needs just three things 
to be truly happy in this world: 

someone to love, 
something to do, 
and something to hope for.

"Since I forsook the world

and broke off all its ties, 
I have felt neither fear 
nor resentment. 
I commit my life to fate 
without special wish to live 
or desire to die. 
Like a drifting cloud 
I rely on anyone 
and have no attachments. 
My only luxury 
is a sound sleep 
and all I look forward to, 
is the beauty 
of the changing seasons."
(Kamo no Chomei)

Society is like a stew.

If you don't stir it up
every once in a while 

then a layer of scum
floats to the top.
