According to Buddha

To love those that love you is easy. To love those that love you not is not so simple. If you want to change anyone, set a better example. Show more kindness, more understanding, more love. That has a sure effect. To those who are not kind, show kindness. To those who are mean, show bigness of heart.

i might as well be in a garden
i said, ah a smell in the air is a dripping rose (you could be the one for me)
another soul to meet my void then
of anything bare that’s made of gold


Aga Khan GardenUniversity of Alberta and Aga Khan University, Devon Alberta ~  September 2018

  1. Nice pictures

    Kind regards,

  2. I must admit that your number description has mystified me for a while. I found it’s a stoner term used to celebrate dabs and cannabis concentrates on the 10th of July. The number spells oil when placed backward; a word used to describe potent concentrations of marijuana like hash oil, honey oil, wax, shatter etc. It fits the quote since showing kindness to mean and evil people, sounds to me a little as a pipe-dream. I firmly believe in mirroring someones attitudes, because the sharks out there will interpret that reciprocating rude and disrespectful behavior with kindness, for weakness and as an invitation to take a bigger slice of you.

    • ahhhhh just for a while…I look for meanings…it’s a way to make my numbering ‘fun’ for me…but of course I’m glad you also appreciate them and look into them…sometimes for me…the title has meanings within meanings ☺️🤓✌️💫 have a joyous weekend ~ smiles hedy

  3. Lovely shots.

  4. The advice up top is good; it’s possible to be strong and not be taken advantage of, without reflecting bad energy back. The second sentence reminded me of the practice of doing numerous full prostrations while keeping in mind someone you’re having trouble with, someone who dislikes you, an “enemy.” The second image feels uplifting, the way you might feel after breaking through some troubling stuff. 🙂

    • yes…working to not ‘hate the haters’…albeit hate is a very strong word to me…and knowing I am not always kind either…I try my best…but so much in the news…good thing I do know I can unplug…👵🏻 and I don’t need to know everything 😳😉 but gosh…I do love the word ‘evolve’ these days…going home to have some wine soon…and relax outside with a fire ☺️💫✌️

      • Relax outside with a fire? Hedy, I think I need to come visit you! and evolve with you… 😉

        • yes and some layers and coats 🙄…tee tee…I always love the word ‘evolve’ I remember Henry Rollins using it in a way that has always stuck in my hedy head 😉

  5. Great pics and quote too Hedy!!!

  6. I really like this series. You give me many interesting views so I get to know the place well.

    • it’s a front to back and up kinda look…it’s a beautiful garden…I wish they were closer to Etown…there are other gardens as well…I always remember loving Stanley park being so close and being “in” the space…this garden in a 40km away…but then I can drive 🤓🧐🙄☺️ have a lovely long weekend Alison and Don ❤️😊 smiles hedy

  7. Wise words indeed 🙂

    • ☺️✌️💫 well I’m sure many of us have said them in some way…you know 🤓 have a wonderful weekend C.M. ~ smiles hedy 😊

  8. Thanks! You too have a lovely weekend! 🙂

  9. So beautifully captured and expressed. 💖

  10. Such beautiful colors. Cheers

  11. Interesting images and wonderful lead quote, Hedy. Kindness. Compassion.

  12. There is an Aga Khan garden in Alberta? 🙂 Strange. I have a photo of my parents with the Begum Aga Khan somewhere…
    I’ve read the article you “sent” me on Poland and Hungary. I’d heard previous comments on both countries but that is scary. Thank you for sharing that.
    Tot ziens meevrouw. 🙂

    • well etown is a strange place…it’s about 40km out of the city…and it is beautiful so serene I love the space and feeling they have created…it’s a part of the U of A…and yes that article…well I do see historical parallels…many of us do 🤓✌️💫 compose a happy day Brian! 😊

      • Serenity is a very important “commodity”. 🙂
        Thank you. I will try to compose…

        • yes I read an article on despair…each day I try to create a time of stillness…”When you get older, plainer, saner”words from LP 😊

          • A time of stillness? Hmmm. Food for (non-thought). I think I’ve managed that with siesta. A “Rememberance” from an African childhood. Here in Mexico, I always arranged to have my office close to homw, so I could go home, have lunch, a quick siesta: 15 minutes reading and 15 minutes “nap”, and back on the saddle again. Of course, except client lunches, meetings, what have you. But that short break a day was always a good way to recharge batteries. 🙂

          • your narratives are like a wonderful novel Brian…such diverse and wide experiences…yes stilling the mind…always hard work for me…but I know what to do and that’s the best! ☺️💫❤️

  13. Wonderful quote Miss Hedy .. these images are so strong. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  14. Lovely images. I shiver with the thought of our first frost being imminent here. Looks like frosty images your way already… 🙂 It is interesting to see such places empty of people. Like the first image. A lawn and beautiful pavilions. Empty and gleaming. With the echoes of consciousness…


    • we’ve had snow…it’s Alberta it comes so changes in weather come as no surprise 🙄 it just is 🌞 today…and one wear many layers living here…thanks for saying the first image…it was entering it felt open and quiet…it was early Saturday morning to photographers…I don’t know how many people go there…it’s 40km from the city and there is an entrance fee…so those things always make me curious…it’s beautiful…I can imagine it on a summer and spring mornings…but the frost was very cool and fresh…peace and joy back to you Micheal smiles ☺️✌️
