Arboreal Wisdom and the Tao. Photo by Avia Venefica“To remain whole, be twisted.
Become bent, and be straightened.
Become hollow, and be filled.
Wear out, and be renewed.”

(22nd stanza of the Tao)

    you are a cool cat who has helped me alot over the years thru your websites. the way you present stuff makes me think and feel differntly. i guess that is your whole point. like you have said – “shift and move beyond” i miss your facebook and twitter updates, but understand the reason you gave for ducking out.

    Thanks for the lovely quote from the Tao, and the soul-nourishing photo. The quote I needed to hear today, as someone who needs reminding about the cycle of life.

    Hope all is well with you.

    Hi Avia,

    I can’t find your email address here to get in touch with you.

    I was just wondering if you mind if I used the photo and quote for my blog post this week (I’ll of course link to your site). This whole theme (trusting that I will be filled up again) is part of my personal learning this week.

    Let me know if that works for you! Thanks.
