|Hello The Ones!
We hope all is well in whichever country this notes finds you.
Welcome to the latest weekly note, where we share the 3-5 things that have us thinking. This is a special edition on the topic of holidays. This is for all the mental, not literal, travellers out there.
: We stole some fruit and mocked turmeric(!) here
Carl Sagan: “A book is made from a tree. It is an assemblage of flat, flexible parts (still called “leaves”) imprinted with dark pigmented squiggles. One glance at it and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, the author is speaking, clearly and silently, inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another. Books break the shackles of time ― proof that humans can work magic.”
Horace: 'Reason and prudence, not a place with a commanding view of the great ocean, banish care.'
John Muir: 'When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop, striped and dotted with continents and islands, flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one, the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty.'
Franz Kafka (Metamorphosis): 'One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin. He lay on his armour-like back, and if he lifted his head a little he could see his brown belly, slightly domed and divided by arches into stiff sections. The bedding was hardly able to cover it and seemed ready to slide off any moment. His many legs, pitifully thin compared with the size of the rest of him, waved about helplessly as he looked. "What's happened to me?" he thought. It wasn't a dream.
That's all for now. Remember, stay curious and keep learning!
