New wrap

Curls and swirls,grids and leaves a dangling all make me think of Autumnal chills.image

I do love grey
It also reminds me of these mournful words
Tao Te Ching: Chapter 33–Knowing Oneself

He who knows others is learned;
He who knows himself is wise.
He who conquers others has power of muscles;
He who conquers himself is strong.
He who is contented is rich.
He who is determined has strength of will.
He who does not lose his center endures,
He who dies yet (his power) remains has long life.

The Wisdom of Laotse
trans. by Lin Yutang

This was also stressed by the Greeks. “Know thyself” is a Delphic maxim which apparently was carved into the forecourt of the Temple of Apollo at Delphi. This chapter however goes beyond attaining knowledge and insists on action. To know oneself is not enough: one must take
what one knows about oneself and act upon it to shape one’s behavior.
