Holiday thoughts

Where there is beauty, there is ugliness.
When something is right, something else is wrong.
Knowledge and ignorance depend on each other.
It has been like this since the beginning.
How could it be otherwise now?
Wanting to toss out one and hold onto the other
makes for a ridiculous comedy.
You must still deal with everything ever-changing,
even when you say it's wonderful.
- Ryokan

These lines quoted by whiskeyriver catch my mood on holiday exactly.

I guess that is what I get for choosing Krishnamurti as my holiday reading!
