I got plenty o'nuttin'

and nuttin' is plenty for me

 

~ Ira Gershwin and DuBose Heyward




melody and harmony

 

it is remarkable

how little we need

 

it is remarkable

that we have everything we need

 

when we are in need of a breeze

we open our windows

 

when it is cold   we have

the heat of a warm body at hand

 

when we are hungry

we have food

 

when we are tired

we sleep

 

i sing a line 

from a gershwin tune

 

from the kitchen marketa

harmonizes

Yayāti
Melodious and harmonious, especially the intermingling of two 'cause-and-effects' like emotions.

How true, O how true!
When it boils down to the barest, we do have all we need.
Minus the fretting and the wanting, it really is all at our fingertips.
