Reading the Coins

Filed under: General — m759 @ 7:00 PM

From Didion’s Play It As It Lays :

Everything goes.  I am working very hard at
not thinking about how everything goes. 
I watch a hummingbird, throw the I Ching
but never read the coins, keep my mind in the now.
— Page 8

From Play It As It Lays :

I lie here in the sunlight, watch the hummingbird. 
This morning I threw the coins in the swimming pool,
and they gleamed and turned in the water in such a way
that I was almost moved to read them.  I refrained.

From a search in this journal for "The Southwest Furthers" —

Hexagram 39:

I Ching, Hexagram 39

The Judgment

Obstruction. The southwest furthers.
