What a long week, feeling the stresses of a design practice. Last night Kong and I went to to a local bar and had a few drinks. I meet a boy called 'Yuki' who is into Jazz as well.

Issue of the moment:
'Being young and dangerous' young chinese culuture??? mixed up identities

Anyways just thinking about my phone call the other night to a special person overseas

6:27 pm - Form & Space
"We put thirty spokes together and call it a wheel;
But it is on the space where there is nothing that the utility of the wheel depends.
We turn clay to make a vessel;
But it is on the the space where there is nothing that the utility of the vessel depends.
We pierce doors and windows to make a house; and it is on these spaces where there is nothing that the utility of the house depends.
Therefore, just as we take advantage of what is we should recognise the utility of what is not."

Tao Te Ching
6th Century B.C.
