Time sometimes flies like a bird,
sometimes crawls like a snail;
but a man is happiest when he does not even notice
whether it passes swiftly or slowly.

He must be very busy if he doesn't notice. Man is happiest when he is busy or having a good time!

That is an interesting photo. I thought a bird at first. Then a snail after I read the quote.

I got to fly last night. I mean I just dove in and flew. You can find out how on my blog post today.

The fact that we are the only creatures that need a watch says it all..!

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
