According to Buddha

Anger takes many forms: touchiness, impatience, displeasure, jealousy, irritability, unhappiness, moodiness. Actually, every one of us has a problem with anger to some degree, unless we are in samadhi.

‘that feeling’ ~ Porto, April 2018

❤️ Dear Sloppy Buddhist followers. ❤️

I am in Hamburg, Germany and yesterday my Adobe Lightroom ‘disappeared‘ from my computer and this is the program I use to both upload and edit my images. I did however received this message.

“Sie befinden sich außerhalb der USA? Auf der Adobe-Website für Ihre Region finden Sie Informationen zu den für Sie relevanten Preisen, Angeboten und Veranstaltungen.”

Zur Website für Deutschland

Currently, I am unable to connect with Adobe here in Hamburg due to my lack of German so I am choosing to share one more image from my April travels in Portugal…you know ‘that feeling’. I will need to figure out what happened or what I did so I am practicing some Buddhist philosophy…in my sloppy hedy way. 😉

My joy is to photograph, meet with new people and explore new places/spaces. Therefore I am choosing not to be indoors in front of my computer figuring out my LR issues. I am also choosing not to be disappointed in myself for not remembering passwords, codes or hanging on the telephone. So I just wanted to let you all know I’ll be back up and running with new visual stories in a few days.

As well, please know I truly appreciate all your *likes*, comments, and supportive words very much. Compose another beautiful day ~ smiles hedy ✌️😊


Hamburg, Germany ~ August 2018





  1. It’s just another day. Do enjoy your travels Hedy

    • all good dear Eddie…sending you joy 💫☺️❤️ my LR was hiding in the cloud 🤓☁️🌤⛅️ always learning ~ smiles hedy

  2. Hedy, just change your settings in your X100 to Raw + Jpg. Use the Jpg’s to upload directly into WordPress. Forget about Adobe and enjoy your vacation. The other alternativ: disconnect from the Internet. Do your Adobe stuff. Create Jpgs and upload afterwards to WordPress. Last alternative: meet me in Berlin and we will sort it out during a coffee break. Enjoy your time. All the best and good luck fixing your problem. Reinhold. Currently in Berlin. Motel One Upper West. 😎

    • yes Reinhold I’d love to meet with you…I have found my LR was hiding in the cloud 🤓☁️🌤⛅️ always learning ~ smiles hedy

      can I email you to connect? it would be so lovely to share a coffee and a little yak 🤓✌️

  3. You are using the cloud version. It is licensed for you in Canada. It sees you as being in Germany. It is Adobe’s way of protecting you. Sort of. Call +49 89 31 705 432:(Adobe Germany) and explain the situation since you don’t read German.

  4. Happy travels, Hedy. Don’t worry about posting! Just immerse yourself in your holiday. 🙂

  5. Enjoy the present, never mind the distractions. Take wonderful photos and we will view them when you are able. Have a great time.

    • oh for sure Terry I do…I’m grateful to be here ☺️ my LR was hiding in the cloud 🤓☁️🌤⛅️ always learning ~ smiles hedy

  6. Take your time Hedy. We can wait a while. Being really there is much more important then being virtually there 🙂

    • I’m love these challenges Peter and having much fun here….my LR was hiding in the cloud 🤓☁️🌤⛅️ always learning ~ smiles hedy

  7. I love the comment: “practicing some Buddhist philosophy…in my sloppy hedy way” For us, there is no better way. Enjoy Hamburg, a great spot to get out and explore. Cheers, Hedy, and wish you safe travels 🙂

    • so much fun and so much to see for sure Randall…my LR was hiding in the cloud 🤓☁️🌤⛅️ always learning ~ smiles hedy

  8. Love the picture tells it all 🙂

  9. There is a light at the end of the tunnel – meanwhile, as the journey proceeds, enjoy the carved mural walls of the tunnel & take lots of pictures. 🙂

  10. In the old days people would take their film to the drugstore for developing then show the tiny prints to friends. Of course I’m too young to remember it but I’ve heard…

    • yes I remember Mike doing my visual narrative research and bringing the rolls of film to Costco ☺️🤓I’m old 😉and I found my LR was hiding in the cloud 🤓☁️🌤⛅️ always learning ~ smiles hedy

  11. Enjoy your travel Hedy and remember “Nothing is permanent. Everything is subject to change. Being is always becoming. (Buddha)”!!!

  12. Arrrgh! I can just imagine how I’d feel if LR disappeared for me. Enjoy your travelling time. Good luck with getting it sorted. We’ll be here when you get back. Smiling right back at you.

  13. what a great face.
    all the best with the computer.

  14. A lovely, wry message about your situation — no wonder you chose to contemplate the various manifestations of anger. May the problem be soon corrected, and you once again enjoy balance in the chaos of existence [a nod to Leonard Cohen, Beautiful Losers]

  15. Frustrating

  16. Great photo for this post…😕. Glad you found the problem…pleasant travels, Hedy.

  17. Excellent photo.
    I really like her expression. It speaks volumes.

  18. Love the image

  19. Glad you found LR! 🙂 How exciting you and Reinhold catching up … brilliant!

    • yes 🌤☀️ and meeting Reinhold was so delightful and educative…we had a wonderful afternoon Julie…big smiles now from Berlin ❤️☺️💫

  20. …ooops, so sorry to hear that! …and yes, THAT is exactly the omg-my-LR-disapeared-face 🙂 🙂 🙂

  21. You probably have the location function enabled, and the computer has found out you were in Germany…
    Bad for Samadhi.
    But I wouldn’t worry much.
    Enjoy the streets and the people. (I just spent 6 weeks without posting, and “don’t think twice it’s all right”)
    (Never reached Samadhi myself. I stopped Yoga when I did an unexpected astral voyage… scared the hell out of me…)
    Pleasant travels. Open your eyes and tell us about it when you come back.

    • guten Morgen 🤪 Brian…all good i figured it out…and no I’ve not reached samadhi…not sure I ever will 🤓 but I try…I’m a being of habit and with my personality I like to feel I ‘do’ something every day…I miss my asana practice now…but of course I do practice daily in my actions…yesterday walked 22km felt good! I find blogging relaxing for me…so I do it with some tea or in the evening to wind down ☺️💫 einen schönen Tag haben 🤗 hugs hedy

      • 22kms? Wunderbar. That may not take you to samadhi but direct to bed. 🙂
        Viel dank für die… wünschen. (I’monna have to check that last one) Confirmed. Gleichsfalls (?) 😉
        Enjoy the trip. It’s always the trip, never the destination. <3

  22. Don’t get mad but get even. Get yourself a cheap VPN service (I use the one from Avira) and then YOU can decide on what location big brother will place you. There are multiple services that are not available once your outside the US (ex. news bulletins, some amazon services, Netflix, etc…). It’s definitively worth the little cost and protects your privacy.

    • I’m Canadian (Dutch)….and yes big brother is watching here in Germany…I don’t know all these things but it seems many news links I read here pop up with this message…

      According to Trump ‘I’m a spoiled Canadian” 🤣😂 ….but I don’t know…all this data/information/news/online communications is often odd to me…but it does seem more ‘controlled’ here in Hamburg and now here in Berlin…thank you for your information I appreciate it Urban…smiles hedy ☺️

  23. And Hedy, hier the final possibility : call me directly and meet me and my macbook in a coffee bar in Hamburg…all problems will be solved 🙂 (Hope you enjoy your stay here in my hometown !)
    Best, Jürgen

    • well thank you kindly Jürgen…it was a cloud issues and big brother watching that I was in a different country but it reappeared after a day or so…Hamburg is a beautiful city…and now we are in Berlin…I appreciate your offer…I would have enjoyed a coffee with you…next time! smiles hedy ☺️✌️💫

  24. Ok, you leave our village and visit the one and only german capital… 🙂 Have a nice journey !
    Best regards, Jürgen

  25. Oh, not to worry, Hedy, you chose the right path – just go outside and enjoy where you are. And by now it’s history. Or hers.
