Complicated Cautions

I Ching ~ Hexagram 9 Hsiao Ch'u Taming Power of the Small

Line 1: Forced change can create despair via impatience.
Line 2: Remain calm and renew devotion to finding truth.
Line 3: Rushing things invites misfortune.
Line 4: Remain detached from the outcome.
Line 5: Abide by healthy principles.
Line 6: Move forward with caution, in rushing lies danger.

The I Ching as a guide emerged about 3000 years ago. And every time I read it, it is as fresh as today, holding both terror and comfort. I'm working on meeting another machine quilter on Sunday after my CT Scan. Both appointments complicated by today's cautions...

My niece is coming up for the things we've been keeping for her. I've been looking forward to it for weeks...dinner and a good visit. Until I realized yesterday I can't eat with a mask on and she works with the public and ... So we'll set everything under the portico and visit at a distance. No Hugs. Sob. But we'll live. Literally.

  1. There is constant prepping, adjusting, and adapting in this new normal. Hope your CT scan is helpful (with good results) and your niece's visit is enjoyable. (((S)))

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
