 My legacy –
 What will it be?
Flowers in spring,
The cuckoo in summer,
And the crimson maples

 Of autumn …

If we are not empty, we become a block of matter.
We cannot breathe, we cannot think.
To be empty means to be alive, to breathe in and to breathe out.
We cannot be alive if we are not empty.
Emptiness is impermanence, it is change.
We should not complain about impermanence,
because without impermanence, nothing is possible.

~Thich Nhat Hanh
