as the old ways become re-used, re-newed, many of the old timers expect praise, reward, acclaim for having learned this before you were born.
as they near extinction, they crave distinction; expect it because they lasted. Fearful that you will not remember them. You shouldn’t. Theirs aren’t the first steps from the edge. Yours might be the last; they are the ones that carry you into your future.
“The Perfect Way is only difficult for those who pick and choose; Do not like, do not dislike; all will then be clear.
Make a hairbreadth difference, and Heaven and Earth are set apart; If you want the truth to stand clear before you, never be for or against.The struggle between ‘for’ and ‘against’ is the mind’s worst disease;”Jianzhi Sengcan & Bruce Lee

It isn’t illustrated using the fighting figure of Bruce Lee, the importer of this mannerism. The path of the Camera Club Clods is to sound the horn without anyone hearing.
