According to Buddha

I am a spark from the Infinite.
I am not flesh and bones.
I am light.

the birds they sang
at the break of day
start again
i heard them say
don’t dwell on what
has passed away
or what is yet to be.
ah the wars they will
be fought again
the holy dove
she will be caught again
bought and sold
and bought again
the dove is never free.

ring the bells that still can ring
forget your perfect offering
there is a crack in everything
that’s how the light gets in.


São Jorge Castle, Lisbon Portugal ~ April 2016

  1. there is a crack in everything…that’s how the light gets in.
    Oh yeah.
    photos and words amaze the eyes and the mind
    Have a most beautiful Sunday Hedy

  2. this is an outstanding post!

    : )

  3. Simply WOW! These are just terrific, Hedy! Have a lovely sunday you, ubertalented wonderwoman! 😉 xxxxxx

  4. Lovely photos, the black and white fits these perfectly. Can I ask where these are from? And you have an excellent day Hedy.

    • thanks kindly Terry…i really loved this castle and it was fun to play with b/w it was fitting with the black and white week 😀 you have a good day too!

  5. I love castles. A nice set of images, Hedy. Have a great day. Cheers!

  6. Great b/w images! Loved the post!

  7. this is a great series. And B&W gives it so much mood. Well done.

  8. Deep, dark and dreamless… Very nice series. 🙂

  9. I love the way you compose your photographs. Both the composition as you take the individual images and the arrangement of multiple photos in your posts. Great work!

    • great Peter i appreciate you saying…i do try on this blog to tell a little visual narrative story…a thread of my knowing…or coming to know…as little thought things…big smiles and thank you! compose a beautiful evening ~ smiles hedy

  10. Brilliant series built on Cohen’s song lyrics. Is that a peacock in the third picture?

    • Thanks kindly Bunty ☺️ yes after about a week I finally found out what the early morning noises were 🤓 peacocks…many in Portugal not so popular here is alberta…new sound for me ☺️ happy Monday smiles Hedy

  11. “I am a spark from the Infinite. I am not flesh and bones. I am light.” And now I know how you use light so well Hedy ~ great series of photos, the contrast and lighting brings out the mystery of this place. Wishing you a great day ahead…

    • Randall ☺️ thank you kindly…thinking of light…trying to be light 🤓 also looking for those spaces of opening…it will be a great day! Sending you joy and light many smiles Hedy 😃

  12. So this time I’m more enamoured of Buddha and the brilliant Leonard Cohen than I am of the photographs, though the third, fifth and sixth are all pretty amazing.

  13. Reblogged this on luc20090's Blog.

  14. very ‘noir esque’

  15. B&W, a good choice for these magnificent pictures! I wish you a happy weekend! 🙂

  16. Beautiful photos, Hedy. Looking at these I thought how interesting we humans are, creating all these geometries and corridors of light on the landscape. I thought you revealed something unmistakably good in our most intuitive acts of building. Something we take for granted I think, and often aggrandize without successfully adding much to it, but in these older structures it seems to somehow shine through… In your images anyway! 🙂


    • you’re kind to say Michael…it is an amazing castle…nothing like it here in Alberta…i admire these buildings…knowing the walls have many stories…om shanti have a happy writing week and a joyful sunday ~ smiles hedy 😀

  17. Wow, great shots!! 👍👍
