And please subscribe as my old friends.
Well, I just hit 66, and while I'm not spry, I'm still active. But I have too many boats in the shed for a guy my age. It may be time to "come off the water," as they say. Maybe I should just take up drawing and painting.

Still water is deep

Quote: It may be time to "come off the water,"
Checked "come off the water" comparing with your location
Still water is deep, the deeper the water is, the slower the flow, although the wind on the water surface is strong, the water sinking in the depths will maintain slowness... a person: in the case of difficult and troublesome, maintain a calm and peaceful attitude. Generally speaking, moving too fast, too fast, wear and die quickly. Peace will last long, so say "quiet and far".

Wish you as a big fish come out from deep water.

I have enormous affection for this site, despite my long absence, due in part to living all over the world, and in part to having a life that has been visited by trouble, some of which was my own fault. I've learned a lot here, and have met new friends, with whom I'm still in contact, as we have moved on to other artistic endeavors. This was and has always been a premier source of information, talent, and camaraderie.

Hi, SB, hope you are doing well --

"Coming off the water" is an idiom that means recognizing that one is getting too old to keep taking boats out into the sea. I'm a life-long and pretty good sailor, but I'm starting to feel my age (66), and I have to be careful about the safety of people I'm with. (I usually sail alone, and I especially like high winds, so I'm kind of a disaster in the making. But I really love pushing everything to the limit, especially when sailing.) I hope you're doing well.

S

P.S. I'm a lot better, now, at being "still water." I think it annoys some folks, who think I just don't care. But equanimity isn't about not caring. It's about not being swept away.

equanimity, equability and ability

I am interested for your sparkling thoughts, which I am lacking of. I compared equa- words, equanimity and equability share higher value. I paid heavy toll for not being in that state of mind.

Steven: I value your words highly, I wish you be one of few to recognize my break though finding in word secrets, which are ignored now.

Without new change, can not surpass the excerllent ones

"If there is no change, we cannot substitute for the hero" is a literary viewpoint proposed by Xiao Zixian in the Southern Dynasty. thus positively affirmed "踵事增华" and "New Changes" in literary propositions. Relative to the classic, "change" is given the same emphasis. This claim, which is not necessarily inferior today than it is in the past, is an absolute new change or even an anti-classical conception of the "solitary spirit".
“'若无新变,不能代雄'是南朝萧子显提出的文学观点。在文学主张上正面肯定了'踵事增华'和'新变',将 相对于经典的“变”予以强调。这种今不必不如古的主张,发展至于极致则是“独抒性灵”的绝对新变甚至反经典 观念"
踵事增华 指继承前人事业,使它更美好完善。“若夫椎轮为大辂之始,大辂宁有椎轮之质,增冰为积水所成,积水曾微增冰 之凛,何哉?盖踵其事而增华,变其本而加厉,物既有之,文亦宜然。”

Order vs. disorder vs. sequence 序 vs 亂,續

Secret is in o in order 序 containing in two parts vertically (a top dot is one part) vs. /i/ in disorder 亂 containing in two parts horizontally, no break at the right part--L like stroke, also /i/ in sequence 續
To be continued...
Order by upper, low two parts in 序 reminds of that jeopardy is severer than danger. Imagine a sword hangs above.

sublimation

If current linguists' views on words are likened to photograph, lack of artistic sublimation, my "Secret of Words" is like Chinese master artist Yang Zhiguang's concise, wonderful brushstroke, conveying spiritual charm, Kong Fu 功夫歲月不饒人.
如果語言學者對單詞的看法比作照相畫匠,一覽無遺卻並無取捨缺乏藝術昇華,
則我的解密猶如楊之光大師的簡練妙筆傳其精神韻味,非畫匠能為。
