Poem for Wednesday and Croydon Creek Waterfall

Gazing at a Waterfall on Mount Lu
By Li Bai
Adapted from translations by Burton Watson, Tiana Wang, and Xu Yuanchong

Sunlight shining on the Incense Stone kindles violet smoke;
From afar, like a veil, the waterfall plunges to the long river,
Flying water cascades three thousand feet from the sky,
Is the Celestial River tumbling from the heights of heaven?


We had another fairly quiet day on Tuesday -- we all had stuff to get done in the morning, then we ordered from Dunkin' to get jelly donuts for Chanukah and Beyond Sausage sandwiches for lunch. We took a walk early because we had plans to Zoom with my extended family (sister, niece, West Coast uncle and cousins) to say Happy Chanukah and check in.

I met my Voyager-watching friends online to watch "Cathexis" which is about as terrible as we remembered, then we watched the rest of Spider-man with Adam before he went to Skype his girlfriend and we watched Noelle, mostly because I like Anna Kendrick, though once is definitely enough! The waterfall in the woods at Croydon Creek:
