Such wise words. So difficult to achieve.

I love this particular style of Buddha head. My Dutch grandfather followed the Buddhist faction of Theosophy in Europe as a young man, and collected Buddha statues throughout his life. They have since been donated to Buddhist temples in Upstate NY where he spent the later part of his life.
My husband, daughter and I recently visited the Asian art museum in San Francisco last week, and it was a truly wonderful collection. I still haven't gotten to those photos, but will post them soon.
Thanks for this!

Well - that was just the nudge I needed to get off the computer and upstairs to my cushion to continue my 90 commitment to sitting 20 mins per day - I'm a wriggly little thing and some days it is a challenge. But I do it for peace.

A meditative pose... Yes, peace is what we need. Thank goodness Obama is in charge!

I adore this picture. Along with the words, I think it's speaking to me. : )
