things flow naturally forward
Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them—that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
— Lao Tzu
A variation on a wrapped patterns design; adapted from the "wishing papers" design by Diana Vandervoort.
