Outside a Connection to the Unknown
Disavow Inauthentic Simplicity

The Essence is in the Space


Tile Roof in Opatija, Croatia / May 2005

Thirty spokes meet in the hub,
But the empty space between them
is the essence of the wheel.

Pots are formed from clay,
But the empty space within it
is the essence of the pot.

Walls with windows and doors form the house,
But the empty space within it
is the essence of the home.

-Lao Tse
