My son and daughter-in-law gave me two little books for my birthday last year: TAO TE CHING and CHILDREN ON PEACE. They found them in one of the common public mailboxes for exchanging books.

One morning I opened the TAO TE CHING to a saying that immediately struck my core. A friend and I text it back and forth now and again, via acronym: HFTTGFW LTWPAIM – admittedly, not the catchiest!

Hold fast to the great form within and let the world pass as it may.
