I think snails are beautiful creatures - shame they eat so much food up my allotment the little perishes.

Slugs - we won't even go there!

I do think they are a thung of beauty!

But beauty in the eye of the beholder....not the allotmonteer!


Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
