“I'm like a duck:
calm above the water,
and paddling like hell underneath.”

that's an unusual photo: you were on top of him? and the quote is for me, I can tell. I have to go off and paddle now, have a wonderful and quiet day.

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
