from a "click and hope" photographer


“As irrigators lead water where they want,
as archers make their arrows straight,
as carpenters carve wood,
the wise shape their minds.”

The carving is in a local park in portrays different facets of the town. I'll be doing a post about it in a few days on my garden blog.

I had to comment again on this. I even send a link to KH and Elmarie to look at this beautiful piece of art and your photos.

Luv it!!!


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
