    wow, wonderful photograph…

    Is the quote a bit like not being able to see the forest for the trees..or rather being able to see everything more clearly once irrelevant details are cleared from your mind.. although I do think trees and barns are rather important.. I’ll look up Masahide,

    Hi Marie
    I think that your barn burning down is not the best thing in the world, but to me the poem says that even misfortune offers a chance to see the world differently, maybe even more beautifully than before – accepting what is rather than lamenting what was.

    maybe, “there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so” from hamlet, or “always look on the bright side of life” from monty python was it?
