Day One: Turning

.בֶּן בַּג בַּג אוֹמֵר, הֲפֹךְ בָּהּ וַהֲפֹךְ בָּהּ, דְּכֹלָּא בָהּ. וּבָהּ תֶּחֱזֵי, וְסִיב וּבְלֵה בָהּ, וּמִנַּהּ לֹא תָזוּעַ, שֶׁאֵין לְךָ מִדָּה טוֹבָה הֵימֶנָּה

Ben Bag Bag said:

Turn it, and turn it, for everything is in it.

And look into it;

And become gray and old therein;

And do not move away from it, for you have no better portion than it.

(Pirke Avot 5:22)


Fanny Howe, "Bewilderment," from The Wedding Dress
