from a "click and hope" photographer

05/08/07



May your joys be as bright as the morning,And your sorrows merely be shadows that fade,In the sunlight of love. May you have enough happiness to keep you sweet. Enough trials to keep you strong. Enough sorrows to keep you human.Enough hope to keep you happy. Enough failure to keep you humble. Enough success to keep you eager.Enough friends to give you comfort. Enough faith and courage in yourself to banish sadness. Enough wealth to meet your needs. And one thing more: enough determination to make each day a more wonderful day than the day before.

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
