"An elderly man was trying to find a place to sit and observe the Olympic Games, as he went to each section. All the other Greeks laughed as he tried to make his way through. Some ignored him. Upon
entering the Spartan section all the Spartans stood and offered the elderly man their seats. Suddenly the entire stadium applauded. All the Greeks knew what was the right thing to do, but the Spartans were the only ones who did it."
Xenophon 427-355 BC
Son of Gryllus, disciple of Socrates
Tengu House will be changing its name soon. As I become more interested in posting again, I find that some people feel it's confusing, because Tengu House is also a restaurant and a dojo and an acupuncture spa. I chose the name originally because I couldn't imagine anyone else using it, but I was wrong. Also, today's Tengu House blog is far less concerned with Asian philosophy and Asian religion than it was fifteen years ago. It's time for a change. I'll be working on a new name this week, and will probably post the new name over the weekend.
