First day back after my 11 day road trip to New Mexico and Colorado. Dug out this morning and hit the scratchboards this afternoon.
"Gonna be a fight?!"
Most people don't realize that before the so-called Gunfight at The O.K. Corral there were a whole bunch of Frontier Looki-loos egging on the participants. The Epitaph reported over 200 miners and men egging on the Earps and the cow-boys with dispatches from each side fanning the flames. Sounds more like a school yard fight, except with shotguns and revolvers.
ugliness. All can know good as good only because there is
evil. Therefore having and not having arise together.
Difficult and easy complement each other. Long and short
contrast each other; high and low rest upon each other;
voice and sound harmonize each other; front and back follow
one another. Therefore the sage goes about doing nothing,
teaching no-talking. The ten thousand things rise and fall
without cease. Creating, yet not possessing. Working, yet
not taking credit. Work is done, then forgotten. Therefore
it lasts forever."
