Best Evidences

Best evidence of a person 
without ego: 
an unmarked grave.

Best evidence of a reason 
to have a cat: 
no thought about how 
to spend the day.

Best evidence of a reason 
to get up in the morning: 
waking up before the alarm.

Best evidence of a reason
To live: 
gratitude, laughter, love.

Best evidence of a reason 
to be curious: 
exuberance as a state of mind.

Little Questions Needing Attention

How many petals bloom on a rose?
Does the earth groan as it rotates?
When is a wave shorter than a line?
Why does idleness cost more than effort?
Isn’t prayer the same thing as humility?
Why does all weather begin as wind?
Who, honestly, wants a perfect memory?
Isn’t sleeping merely practicing annihilation?
Who among us finds pleasure in failure?
