About Daoistic

I've been reading Daoist poetry in English for a long time, but mostly I've had no idea what to make of it. When I found the ctext version of the Daodejing online, I liked how patterned the poems look in classical Chinese compared to how vague they seem in English, so I thought I'd try learning to read them in something like the original.

I'm certainly no expert, definitely not Daoist, but I like spending time wondering what they were on about. Sometimes I try to express what I think I find there in my own words and publish them here.
