From a temple plaque: “The beautiful Khue Van Cac is a symmetrical building that represents humility, clarity and refinement. Built in 1805, its square plinth symbolizes the earth, the high two-storey tower with images of the sun represents the sky, the breezeway through the open pavilion represents the wind, while the pool in front of the pavilion symbolizes Yin in balance with the pavilion symbolizing Yang. The Khue Van pavilion links the second with the third courtyard. The absence of a gate or door in the pavilion’s design indicates that the path towards enlightenment is a continuous one without limitation of space and time."

  • Give yourself permission to care for yourself like you care for a friend. With empathy, compassion, and patience.
  • You have a deep sense of responsibility for other people. This will exhaust you and eat you up, so boundaries and travel is a must to remind you that no matter how embodied you feel in your situation, these are all temporary. Travel is a death rehearsal. You are insignificant in the scale of the world.
  • By hook or by crook, take vacations to do nothing. "--to contemplate the future or the past of the world, to dream over books and loiter at street corners and let the line of thought dip deep into the stream."
  • Be selfish and schedule a vacation earlier than midyear. You usually have a mini or major burn out by June.
  • On vacations, play Nina Simone. I wish I ...

“Therefore I would ask you to write all kinds of books, hesitating at no subject however trivial or however vast. By hook or by crook, I hope that you will possess yourselves of money enough to travel and to idle, to contemplate the future or the past of the world, to dream over books and loiter at street corners and let the line of thought dip deep into the stream.” (Virginia Woolf, A Room of One's Own)
