Epicenter for Change

18 Feb

The tenet of I Ching (Book of Changes) is that all life is change.  The ancient Chinese observations are organized into 64 descriptions of expected/predictable changes.  When the element of time is added, transitions between these changes are also predictable (if, as modern Westerners we can understand the language and symbols).

Since adding my page “I Ching Inspiration”, I realized for the last 18 months there has been a LOT of change in and around my home here in the midwest.  For example:  a new roof, restoration of drainage (blocked by south neighbor), city water lines…plus the sale and renovation of our backdoor neighbor’s property of 40 years.  Here I go… with I Ching references and photos!
