I had a great long weekend in Boston. But I was sort of out of touch from news and the net. I hope nothing happened in the last 3 days.
I've been reading The Analects ("sayings") of Confucius. "Confucius," by the way, is a latinized version of Kǒng Fūzǐ, or Master Kong.
This is my favorite from today's reading:
"If a man takes no thought for what is distant, he will find sorrow near at hand."
Ignore what is afar
and you'll find the things you fear
