A Nobler Art

A  L  O  H  A   from   Honolulu!
" Besides the noble art 
of getting things done,
 there is a nobler art of 
leaving things undone. -

- The wisdom of life
 consists in the
 elimination of
 nonessentials. "
                            Lin Yutang

Good Security Fences

" Getting things done is not always what is most important. 
There is value 
in allowing others
 to learn. "
                     R.D. Clyde

If all your plates
are spinning,
life appears

Nice Job!
            Fondly, cloudia

I like the colour of the security gate. Hard to ignore. The Lin Yutang quote is one I need to pay better attention to!

Love the idea that the nobler art is leaving things undone! Great pictures, although double security gates seem a lot to me.

"A noble art of leaving things undone." That is like a koan; an idea to ponder. This was a joyous post, Cloudia!

By the way, I finished "Aloha! Where You Want to Go?" It was excellent. I especially enjoyed reading about Duck and Aunty Na. Thank you for sharing that vision of Hawaii with us.

The glossary was helpful and informative.

The second noble art is one I have nailed. An artist - and I didn't realise.

The crux of a dilemma is learning what things to let alone and what to take seriously.
