On that far mountain
On the slope below the peak
Cherries are in flower
Oh, let the mountain mists
Not arise to hide the scene.
Japanese poem by Oe no Masafusa from Ogura 100 poems (early 13th century)
Happy Easter everyone!
A True Knight has Courage
A True Knight must have the courage to stand up for those principles which he or she believes are right, especially in the presence of those who oppose the cardinal virtues of the Knighthood.
A True Knight is never afraid to defend their own rights and those of others.
A True Knight shall always stand to defend the rights of the weak, the oppressed, and
A True Knight shows excellence. He (she) is honorable, loyal, generous, well-spoken, discrete, wise, pure, cour-teous and just.
From “The Knights Code”
What a pity that there are not true knights anymore…
A friend told me that she wants a bracelet. The requirement were: a lot of metal, leather and something green. I hope she likes it and feels hereself full of excellence and courage. That will be a good start, won’t be?
