Autumn, week 3
"We have everything because we are everything. Look at the beautiful parts of us that are the mountains. Do we need them in our living room? Do we have to own them? They are us!...Give away everything and I won't be a hungry ghost. Try to grab everything and I'll only get hungrier." --Bernie Glassman
