According to Buddha

Real happiness can stand the challenge of all outer experiences. When you can bear the crucifixions of others’ wrongs against you and still return love and forgiveness; and when you can keep that divine inner peace intact despite all painful thrusts of outer circumstance, then you shall know this happiness.

hb images - blue barn wall and weed

i grew up here all of my life
but i dreamed someday i’d go
where the blue eyed girls and red guitars
and the naked rivers flow

i’m not all i thought i’d be
i’ve always stayed around
and i’ve been as far as mercy and grand
frozen to the ground


barn outside of etown ~ Edmonton, Alberta ~ March ~ 2018

  1. Aw, c’mon Hedy. The Tom Waits original is far better.

    • well yes perhaps I agree Neurodrooling…but I just felt Joan Baez with her birthday and well I can’t whistle I also love Tom here we can also listen <3

      have a wonderful writing day ~ smiles hedy 😀 💫

  2. Wonderful!

  3. You brought out some wonderful texture in these weathered old buildings, Hedy. I really like it. Have a great Sunday! Cheers!

  4. Wonderful. I love these kind of pictures.

  5. Beautiful pictures! <3 barns–old barn wood, and pretty flowers, even dried remnants of them–bring me real happiness and inner peace. 😀 That last pic of the barn is amazing–you really captured the intricacies of the old wood. Thank you for sharing! Both versions of the song are nice, by the way. 🙂 Happy almost Spring! (hopefully….!)

    • I do love abandoned buildings…I’m in Regina and it’s still winter but sunny…I read etown is getting more snow….ahhhhh but it’s lighter and brighter and wet snow….have a happy Thursday dear Raven Wolfe <3 💫☺️❤️

  6. Excellent.

  7. Hedy, thank-you. That took me back to the days of unpretentious heart felt soul.

  8. wonderful play of little things.. ..detached and together with other things… …smiles 🙂 🙂 🙂

  9. I like the balance of your images.

    • thank you for saying Alex…I like simplicity and learning about minimalism…compose a beautiful day ~ smiles hedy 💫☺️

  10. Working well together, the photos and Baez…wow, gotta hand it to her for working with her voice as it is. Not pure as it was decades ago, but the roughness is really nice, actually.

    • yes I hear this too…a friend of mine says women’s voices change in pitch/tone as we age…oh my yet another change…ahhhhh bodies….I always liked Kim Carnes’s voice wonder what she sounds like now…thank you Kindly for your comments I do appreciate them Lynn 😀 💫

      • Well sure, our voices deepen, and who’d want a high-pitched adolescent voice with a mature life anyway? What I have a hard time with is the deepening of the wrinkles, and all the fault lines of the skin….just like a mature tree with beautifully furrowed bark, and we love it in that context. 😉 OK, I had to look up Kim Carnes – didn’t remember her because I wasn’t listening to much pop in the 80’s, but I like the voice, and she’s still recording, at over 70 yrs old, and the voice sounds not so different! 😉 But def more rasp. 😉

        • for sure…i’ve taught female teachers to lower their sweet little voices while they teach…so maturing what we hope for…to evolve…yes i agree the smile lines deepen…soon i will be rare 😉 😀 i do like Kim <3 have a good one i'm playing this now 😀 thank you Lynn

  11. Your posts always draw a smile.
    Thank you Hedy.

  12. True happiness does not depend on otter circumstances but inner stability.

  13. it should read ‘outer’

  14. I love old barns … wonderful Hedy! So is happiness … 😃

  15. Beautiful images, and equally beautiful words, Hedy. I loved your opening message from the Buddha. Very inspiring. Wishing you a blessed day…
