According to Buddha

If you think you are enlightened; go home for Thanksgiving.

laugh, oh laugh a little apple
autumn is waitin’, you’d better be careful,
for it will bring you down
if it ever sees you wearing a frown
so laugh, laugh a little apple


apples at The Multicultural Heritage Centre ~ Stony Plain AB ~ September 2020

  1. i love the thanksgiving quote

  2. Somewhat coincidentally, I’m having some apple slices with breakfast this morning. See ya!

  3. Hauntingly beautiful. Hope autumn finds you well.

  4. What an amazing progression. And the quote: perfect.

    • Well thank you kindly Michael…I needed some funny…enlightenment happens when we die 🤓🤔 not sure it happens here but I don’t know 🤷‍♀️💫

      • My view is that enlightenment happens right here right now. And you’re working on it.

        • 🤷‍♀️I don’t know what does it look like or feel like…who knows…maybe it’s a way of being a vibration of sorts…sure one can always work on signs and characteristics but maybe it’s already there invisible or maybe it’s all nothing 🤔no thing 😳🤓 nothingness…off to run the mutt 🐶

          • Don’t think too much, my friend. If you can remain calm during a contentious Thanksgiving dinner, you are that much closer to enlightenment — and certainly much closer than most people. 🤓😊Enlightenment does not come all at once, it develops gradually. The first sign of self-awareness that Enlightenment would be a good thing, is actual fact, enlightenment. The journey of 1000 miles begins with the first step.

          • I do try to feel more and think less 🤓…I’ve got some funny memories of thanksgiving and holiday dinners all good…and yes always one step at a time. 🤓💫

  5. That quote wasn’t actually Buddha. It was someone like Ram Dass or Eckhart Tolle. I think the discovery of America and Thanksgiving is way ahead of Buddha’s timeline…still a good quote tho! LOL!

    • You’re right it’s Ram Dass he was a Buddha🤷‍♀️or not…yes we have thanksgiving in October in Canada and it’s not really a Dutch celebration…lots of hallmark you know…it made me giggle too…I can just see it all 😳🙂🙃😉😂 have a lovely writing day George 🙋‍♀️ sending joy hedy

  6. It’s geting to be apple season, isn’t it? Have a great day, Hedy.

    • Actually it’s very rare to see apple trees in etown or this region…they were delightful…I didn’t pick any of them through…so I wonder if they were sweet or tart…crabapples do grow well here…yes inside outside day ☺️🤓☀️ hope yours was productive too 💫 hugs hedy

      • I sepnt the day teaching teachers to use technology. But I spent yesterday up in the mountains finding covered bridges. Hugs back.

        • I’ll check out your adventures and good to get breaks away from the technology with nature…that will fill you up 🤓☺️🌲🌳🌿

  7. Fiona Apple?

    • Yes☺️🎵🎶Fetch the Bolt Cutters🎵🎶🎵➕

      • The pump don’t work cause the bailer took the handle. — Dylan. Seriously, Bolt Cutters is a great album.

        • I also appreciate Dylan 🤓 one of my first LPs 💫 i also have always enjoyed Fiona … hoping you’re all doing ok…rains…hurricane 😱😰😫 be safe with your loved ones Ray 🤗💫 sending kindness and hugs.

          • My first albums were Beatles. I almost got loaned to Fiona for her tour. Her dog got sick and she cancelled the tour. I never even met her. Sally turned even more to the east. We may not even get rain or wind. Even if Sally slipped down the alley, we live in a fort as our six year old says. 🙂

          • Well that’s an unfortunate turn of events for all of you…hope her dog is well…must have been really ill 🐶😱 and yes glad Sally moved away from you all…enjoy your fort and some crabs ☺️ or shrimps maybe ~ hugs hedy 🤗💫

          • As I know it, her dog is in fine shape. He is pretty old by now because that happened in 2013 and he was headed into old age back then. WE mostly have soft shell crabs. The only way to eat them is deep fried. We are staying away from that. That’s the thing down here, people say that they love all kinds of shellfish and fish. What they really like is the deep fried batter.

          • yes deep fried batter…not my favourite ☺️🤓 I’ve made Nasi Goreng with keropok…it’s going to be delicious…😋 enjoy your night Ray 💫

          • Mmmmm. Singapore food. We made couscous, with a kind of grilled chicken and a lot of veggie. Eat well.

  8. Lovely B & W images. I especially like the first one. 🙂

  9. Good old Cat Stevens.. 🙂 Fine shots; love the first one!

  10. Cat Stevens! Sounds the same, a legacy is right. The last two photos together make for an intriguing mystery, really nice Hedy. 🙂

    • ☺️🙏 that’s lovely appreciate you saying Lynn…hoping you’re safe and out of the smoke…wild year 🤯🤗☺️ hugs and joy

      • In the thick of it, unfortunately, for days and days and no end in sight…and the numbers are mostly in the very unhealthy category – not just unhealthy or unhealthy for some people, but VERY. Unreal.

  11. I appreciate the T’giving quote, too! 🌞

  12. Oh dear! How true.

  13. Ah!!! This is brilliant!! 😂🤩👌

  14. Buddha and Thanksgiving? Hmmm. 🤔

  15. This message is so powerful and inspiring.

  16. Quite a lovely piece…!👌
