For my friend Adam, running straight at transformation in Southern California. Peace be with you.
And when the sun comes, trumpets from his red house in the east
He will find a standing stone where long I chanted my release
He will send his morning messenger to strike the hammer blow
And I will crumble down uncountable in showers of crimson rubies when I go.
Slender, so slender
its stalk bends under dew —
little yellow flower.
-Matsuo Bashō, 17th c. Japan
If you’re not going to proofread your own work don’t you think it’s a good idea to have someone else do it for you? What possible return can a business hope for from such a slipshod investment of time & resources?
