According to Buddha

Strive ceaselessly; never be impatient. Once the finality is achieved, incarnation of troubles will be over in a second, just as when light is admitted within a room that has been locked for decades, the darkness vanishes instantly.

i was working up a conversation
but i didn’t know how to start
your heart is a work of art
i wanna be rich in memories not money
our love is our inheritance honey
we’ve come so far


random streets of Lisbon, Portugal ~ April 2016.


  1. Good morning and wow… lovely eye on the image.

  2. I love street art! The monkey is great! But all photos are very nice. 😉

  3. Beautiful images, and an important message in times of strife. Thanks for sharing Buddha with us in so many special ways here, Hedy. That is a gift. 💕 Van

    • Van ☺️ that’s wonderful for me to read…humble thanks and you know I’m a sloppy Buddhist…still learning along the way 😄 life is beautiful…along with some nonsense…which makes no sense 🤓😉🤔☺️ have a happy day…I playing with tea cups and my iPhone mini lens ☺️ <3

      • I was raised Catholic, even aspired to be a nun. When I took my first Comparative Religion course, my eyes were opened to eastern philosophy and Buddhism held a special place in my heart. Still does. 💕

        • i was raised Dutch Christian Reformed…when i was 7 my mother pulled me out…she sent me to the United Church which i attended through highschool…then i studied and taught research methods…my eyes were also opened…i still continue to question why as i search and wonder…i don’t know…but the Buddhists do have a lot to say…and their words also touch my heart… <3

  4. The “urinol” sign is unique. This looks great in BW. Have a great week, Hedy. I hope you find some new adventures. Cheers

    • ahhhh the beauty of a simple, utilitarian washroom…clearly not a split-gender character but made me smile 😀 Chris my life is an adventure…i wake up each and wonder why/what surprise will occur today…some days i’d prefer to stay on yoga mat all day! Have a fun week too! many smiles hedy

  5. Nice set of photos 🙂
    (Raised Irish Roman Catholic; enjoy reading much more about Buddhist thinking)

    • humble thank you Peter 😀 on this platform i work hard to find beauty…and i’ve learned looking for beauty every day is possible…and even joyful…although there is always that little jaded part in my hedy head 😀 probably always be so i release those thoughts other practices…camerawork is also a lot of fun…have a wonderful day ~ smiles hedy

  6. “I wanna be rich in memories not money”… Love those words… excellent photographs, dear Hedy!… happy sunday. Sending love! Aquileana 😀

  7. For years have felt drawn to Portugal. Fine photos comdined with your
    words plant even greater urge

    • Eddie…i can’t shake the feelings of being in Lisbon and seeing just a tiny bit outside…beautiful city and people…i really felt comfortable there…safe…and well yes the Buddha always much to say 😀 have a joyful day ~ smiles hedy

  8. Terrific images!

  9. Just lovely photos as always. I must get to Portugal and Spain they are both on my Bucket List. The song is very strong in emotions, I enjoyed it. Buddha’s saying is wise, open your heart to light and it darkness will no longer be there. Have a great Sunday evening.

    • Terry i agree…and yes i’d love to return…Jon Foreman was in the bad Switchfoot…i love his solo work even better…i love his album “greetings from the wonderlands”…

      had a great walk in the grey woods…wonderful yoga class…and now some time with the camera…all good so far…hope yours is joyful…maybe you have family time or grandchildren? 16 days and i get to see mine…but whose counting! have a gooder ~ smiles hedy

  10. 495 🙂
