Icarus; I know how wonderful your photographs are but the content of this one is beyond compare...thanks for coming by and sharing in it so glad it didn't come up as one of those dreaded red crosses.
Natalya...yes it's very special; nice to have you touring my blogs..

Aha, now I can see the quote but not the one for today..hmmm?
A moving photo and quote Dear Ruth. I'm sure when Mick is happy you are happy, and both of your smiles are a source of joy..xx

Weird goings on Sheila. I don't know if it's something to do with blogger/google or what? I know the problem is still persisting for bloggers re red crosses at times instead of pictures; maybe there is also a problem with text. I know different browsers can sometimes be a problem but if it was that then I would have thought you would permanently not see the text. Do you have this problem on my other blogs or is it just this one????

Sheila said...

Just this one Ruth. It's always missing from the top story, only to become visible when it drops down to second place, after you post a new one. I can't read the one on the pestle and mortar right now, but after you post again I will be able to..?
Your other blogs are fine..

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
