“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” (Carl Rogers)

March 5th #chinadiary

Carl is surprised at how quickly time has gone by - 5 or 6 days, although one day was 'lost' "somwhere in the mid Pacific"... He says that "it has been a rather uneventful period since I last wrote", however, his days do seem to have been full enough to exclude writing the diary! He reports on porpoises, flying fish and a costume ball where the delegation "cut up generally". And all the while, it seems, Carl and party are having "some great old discussions on all sorts of questions, mostly on religious lines". It seems to me that debate and reflection mostly on religious lines could well account for the previous week's absence from the diary.
