under this ficus tree

lesson learnt last year: beauty is attachment. if we were all detached we might as well be inanimate. 

we've been put here in this world to be worldly.
what's the point in withdrawing?
what's the point of trying to find reasons? 
what's the point of trying to find a beyond? 
life's too short.
there is only here and now. 
take at face value, i say. be materialistic, be happy.

this year, i shall strive towards being horrifyingly superficial and delightfully shallow.

In the end, it is best to be Epicurean and live wholly unconcerned by death and his fellows. The good thing about the shallows is one cannot drown oneself in them. ;)
