According to Buddha

So often we mistake movement for meaning.

where our world falls to pièces
and the moonlight starts to hide
in a million little splinters
in the corners of our mind

you believe what you see;
all the things that you know;
but, oh, you, don’t know
the depth of my soul; the depth of my soul

oooh… the depth of my soul


last pieces of ice (I promise) ~ North Saskatchewan RiverEdmonton, AB ~ April 2019

  1. what we ‘see’ is an illusion, the sooner this understanding is reached,
    the sooner we might obtain deeper inspiration

    • yes I agree the sooner this understanding is reached…sometimes it takes a bit long, for me anyways 🤓 finding my soul was hard work and also very freeing ☺️ have a joyful and inspirational day dear Eddie…enjoy your garden…I’m off to do some forward bends 🧘‍♀️nameste ✌️❤️

  2. Magical ice! Breaking up the icebergs of the soul to reveal new depths. The 2nd and 3rd images are especially painterly. Love the Thievery Corp track also. Well done.

    • oh thank you kindly Mobius you also know the magic of ice…I’ve seen the beauty you create 🤓 and yes I also love Thievery Corp…humble thank you ☺️ sending you joy and creative vibes for your photography and writing ~ smiles hedy ☺️✌️💫

  3. It’s good to see that it is warming up there. Enjoy the milder weather, Hedy. Cheers!

    • yes it was long…came back from the Netherlands in the fall to snow and finally finally it is leaving…but of course we’ll have our usual spring storm but at least the ice is moving and the river is flowing again…I love this time of year Chris…compose a joyful and productive week ~ smiles hedy ☺️✌️💫

  4. No matter what, break up time is always an exciting time! How many, I wonder, actually realize they are now watching their civilization’s break up time? It’s been too long, the patriarchal winter of violence, hunger and stifling of human dreams. Your photography reminds me how much I’m enjoying watching the cracks widen as the water frees itself from bondage. Many will drown in the break up but that’s because they can’t believe established ‘way of it’ is over and they remain on the ice.

    • I love to see and hear the ‘break up’….such powerful words Sha’Tara…I appreciate what you are saying here very much 🤓☺️ makes sense to me in my hedy head…’the patriarchal winter of violence, hunger and stifling of human dreams’…soon we’ll see what happens here in Alberta 🧐 who will swim and who will sink….have a wonderful writing day ~ smiles and joy to you ☺️✌️❤️

  5. Great post! Love the photos!

  6. i don’t know
    but it sounds
    dramatic 🙂

    • it is dramatic and the power of the river makes it exciting to me…I love to see the ice break and float away…fun time of year for me after a long harsh winter 🌞🌷 have a happy day David ☺️

  7. nice set of photos

    • humble thank you Gavin…thank you for saying…sending sunshine down under…spring is springing here hooray 😁 have a snappy day!

  8. The gas station at Dog River, next door to Ruby’s Cafe.

    • I’m feeling a song Ray…almost sounds a tad Canadian too 😳😄🙂 have a beautiful day ~ smiles hedy

      • It’s a Netflix series about Dog River, Saskatchewan where the biggest thing in town in the Gas Station and Ruby’s Cafe. It’s funny as it could be. So much so, that we binge watched about ten episodes. During the last episode that we watched, the town council got the idea that in order to draw tourists they need to have to world’s biggest… something. Since they are a farming community, somebody proposed, “The World’s Biggest Ho.” The young folks didn’t want it for obvious reasons. The older people have all the power and so… I may also be learning about you. Heh, heh, heh.

  9. I would never have thought the Buddha and the (as it then was) Canadian Petroleum Association would have much in common, but here we are. In the days of the NEP (National Energy Policy), much despised by western Canada, one of the CPA’s favourite criticisms was to scold it for rewarding activity (movement), rather than success (meaning).

    • Well those Buddha’s do have a way with words Penny ☺️🤓 Tuesday will be a telling day albeit I doubt anything will change but I don’t know 💫

  10. wonderful post, Hedy. Photos and word… …hand in hand. smiles to you 🙂

  11. Wonderful post Hedy!

    Hailing from Australia, the only ‘real’ ice I’ve seen breaking away is at Perito Moreno glacier in Argentina – spectacular but also sad.

  12. Hello Miss Hedy … that first image is magical! There is something very alluring about it … thanks for sharing 🙂💫

    • the house fits beautifully into the side of the river…it was a magical walk…the ice is just about gone now hooray 😁 have a wonderful weekend Julie ✌️❤️ smiles hedy

  13. Hopefully by now – I know, hopelessly late in reading your posts – the ice will have melted away…

    • just about now Brian…the sun is brighter and the winds are howling…smiles to you hope you are well Brian ~ hugs and joy 💫☺️
