According to Buddha

Compassion does not see the faults of others.  It does not see the weaknesses of people.  It makes no distinction between good and bad people.  Compassion cannot draw a line between two countries, two faiths or two religions.  Compassion has no ego; thus there is no fear, lust or passion.  Compassion simply forgives and forgets. Compassion is like a passage.  Everything passes through it.  Nothing can stay there.  Compassion is love expressed in all its fullness.

i just can’t go without
i could never drown

they wanna get my
they wanna get my
gold on the ceiling
i ain’t blind
just a matter of time
before you steal it
it’s alright
ain’t no guard in my house

Sunday walk in the hamlet of St. Michael, AB ~ April 2019

  1. Beautiful old world feel here Hedy. At first glance they reminded me of 1950’s postcards.
    Alison

    • and that is how it often feels here in Alberta…and maybe Tuesday we will really return to the 50’s to boot…I’ll need to fly away for sure then ☺️💫 have a happy Sunday Alison 🌞

  2. Love the photos and your poem!

  3. i like the first one. looks haunted.

  4. Beauty in all its forms originates from the heart.
    Have a most delightful day dear friend

  5. Great to return to you and get lost in a little hamlet ~ reminds me of my home town area in Eastern Oregon. The magic of the words along with your photos of a place both in the past and present is uplifting, wish you a great weekend, Hedy. Take care ~

    • hello Randall I went to visit your blog this week so it’s lovely to read your words here now 🤓☺️ hope you are well and yes out Alberta hamlets are lovely space to visit and have a lunch or coffee too…smiles from Montreal 💫

  6. I loved your opening sentiments, Hedy. And the juxtaposition of churches, garages, homes and tangled mats of brush is perfect. The deer was awesome, too. 🙂

    Michael

    • several people have been reminding me of the place of compassion these pass weeks…so it was in my hedy head…and yes that deer made me giggle…like it was peaking at me…always strange as an outsider to see these places…something comfortable about them too…albeit very quiet ☺️ sending you joy and writing vibes Micheal 🤓 smiles hedy 💫

  7. Houses are strange. Beautiful photos.

  8. Master…craft…in every way.

    So well done.
