According to Buddha

The world as a whole has forgotten the real meaning of the word love. Love has been so abused and crucified by man that very few people know what true love is. Just as oil is present in every part of the olive, so love permeates every part of creation. But to define love is very difficult, for the same reason that words cannot fully describe the flavor of an orange. You have to taste the fruit to know its flavor. So with love.

she stepped off the boat to see flowers in his hands
the man she would marry was as hard as the mountains
she had his children in a log cabin
soon i’d be another star in this family’s constellation
in the land of the midnight sun
searching for gold
i am my father’s daughter
he has his mother’s eyes
i am the product of her sacrifice
i am the accumulation of the dreams of generations
and their stories live in me like holy water
i am my father’s daughter

random streets in Toronto ~ June 2017

  1. Beautiful summery images, Hedy. It looks like the summer weather has reached you. Have a wonderful week. Cheers!

  2. Tenderness erupted here in these mindful words and beautiful well captured photos
    wrap your arms around yourself and hug.
    you are you father’s beautiful daughter
    it’s always a good day

    • dear Eddie…thank you…and it’s always a good day i agree…sending you kindness and all good things! delicious sunshine…warms my heart ❤

  3. I’m reading the lyrics, thinking it sounds a whole lot like Jewel’s Alaska poetry. 🙂

    Returning after a detour on YouTube……that guy on the bench could have been me, making slightly different choices. 😨

    • Jewel is a wonderful artist…i love her works…and yes i know Robert perhaps, we all are…i don’t know…but when i walk miles and miles in large urban spaces…i am reminded it’s just one step away…and i’m grateful to have my bed…have a poetic day ~ sending gratitude and smiles hedy 😀

      • yes, me too. I was on the streets for 6 months once upon a time but I knew I could get off by making a few different choices, so I guess you could say it was voluntary. There’s some good people out there and some not so good, as would be expected. Too many people just assume they are all drunks or druggies.

        • I’ve learned never to assume…and yes I’ve known people who have gotten themselves into situations….often traumatic stories and their stories became bigger than them or their loved ones…I always think they belong…and some loves them…I always hope 🤓☺️❤️ thank you for sharing Robert sending kindness and all good things!

  4. Love the light and shade in the pics–and the pinks and greens–so vivid.
    I agree that much of the world has forgotten what love is. Our sadly “disposable” culture seems to discard and move on all too easily. The man on the bench may feel “left behind” and forgotten like the blue binoculars…. Hope not.

    • such rich lush colours in TO 😀 and yes Raven Wolfe a disposable/throw away culture…all love needs attention to stay vibrant…or love fades…into soft pastel hues…or perhaps, eventually love is erased or dies…by ignoring and being numb…sadly, i see some of the same people living on the streets here from years ago…i too have many wonders about the definitions of love…and yes the little blue car does look like a set of tiny binoculars…i saw them and thought about my father who often asked me ‘how’s your car’ which really meant ‘i love you’…i was also reminded that looking and listening can be hard work…sending sunshine your way for a love filled day ❤

  5. Beautiful song (Dolly makes me swoon every time – and Jewel’s not bad too). I love the shot of the old guy, and am always touched by pink dogwood. Beautiful Hedy. Happy Sunday.
    Alison

    • Dolly is wonderful and so alive…i never know the flora names…but yes i love the soft pinks too…hoping you are having a beautiful day too Alison 😀

  6. Jewel 💎 rocks. My all time fav is Jewel – Hands (Official Video) – YouTube
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=AfsS3pIDBfw . Stunning post, Hedy. Words, images and music. Always an inspiration. Happy Days. Reinhold

  7. Tender and poetic, with love, all are qualities we could use more of.

    • i agree Lynn…reading more work of Paramahansa Yoganandai also think of his words…’Poise is a beautiful quality. We should pattern our life by a triangular guide: calmness and sweetness are the two sides; the base is happiness. Whether one acts quickly or slowly, in solitude or in the busy marts of wo/men, his/her center should be peaceful, poised.’ Compose a beautiful day and thank you kindly for your comment ~ smiles 😀

  8. there is again a wonderful mood in your photos. The man on the bench is outstanding! smiles to you 🙂 🙂
