Vibrant!

quill

I’ve only recently met Vibrant.  He tells me that he didn’t write this poem himself, but posted it from a verse from classic book entitled Tao Te Ching.   Check out his site at : https://blabberwockying.wordpress.com/ And as always, heeeerrrreeee’s my disclaimer.

Tao Te Ching 11

Thirty spokes join in one hub
In its emptiness, there is the function of a vehicle
Mix clay to create a container
In its emptiness, there is the function of a container
Cut open doors and windows to create a room
In its emptiness, there is the function of a room

Therefore, that which exists is used to create benefit
That which is empty is used to create functionality

Tends toward TMI, so here's the short list: guitar and banjo (both of which have been much neglected as of late), bicycling (ibid), dogs, very black tea, and contemplating and commenting on deep philosophical thoughts about which I have had no academic or professional training. Oh, also reading, writing, but I shy away from arithmetic.
