" In my first thirty years of life
I roamed hundreds and thousands of miles.
Walked by rivers through deep green grass
Entered cities of boiling red dust.
Tried drugs, but couldn't make Immortal;
Read books and wrote poems on history.
Today I'm back at Cold Mountain:
I'll sleep by the creek and purify my ears. "
Translated by Gary Snyder

What kind of life is this,
Living in the vacation land
I look at the world
of important affairs
and it is just as happy
And so, like Han Shan,
I live in retirement.
Except that my words
are not secrets
Thank YOU, cloudia
