According to Buddha

To stay with that shakiness—to stay with a broken heart, with a rumbling stomach, with the feelings of hopelessness and wanting to get revenge—that is the path of true awakening.  Sticking with that uncertainty, getting the knack of relaxing in the midst of chaos, learning not to panic—this is the spiritual path.  Getting the knack of catching ourselves, of gently and compassionately catching ourselves is the path of the warrior.  We catch ourselves one zillion times as once again, whether we like it or not, we harden into resentment, into a sense of relief, a sense of inspiration.

so let’s take the streets, 
see what people need, 
make some kids and keep ‘em safe, 
hold on tight through every night, 
these walls will see us both go.

  11. I recommend Matt Haig’s “The Midnight Library” – a combination of bardo and “It’s a Wonderful Life”

    • Thank you kindly Joan…I will add to my book stack…soon time to take a year off to just read 🤓🙏 compose a wonderful day ~ smiles hedy ☺️

  12. Love your words, kindred spirit. 🌺

  13. Hedy, this series is simply wonderful. The opening shot struck me as a beautiful, spare, winter drawing at first. Then the blur, then the wintry street corner where you can feel the cold. That bare-branched tree with its coquettish pose and the arching bridge in the distance – nice work! The final two figures appear to have turned into ice themselves. All wonderful, Hedy!

  14. Great thoughts and images. Dankje wel Hedy. Reminded me of the Army. Though I disliked the entire experience, I did learn a few useful things.
    “Walk. Don’t run”. Setting: explosives training. Each soldier is lined up. A safe distance away from the other. We each have a bar of explosive and a wick. The wick’s length is related to the time of burning. Calculate the time: 30 seconds for instance. Cut the wick accordingly. Sargent checks every soldiers length. Insert the wick into the explosive. Wait. For the order. Light the wick. Put the explosive on the ground. Turn around. Away.
    Now WALK! Slowly. DO NOT run. If you run you might trip. And get blown away.
    So you walk away slowly 10-20 yards. Whatever… Just walk.
    The lesson I learnt then, is that the tougher the situation? The slower you must act to handle it. 😉
    Happy new year Hedy. 🙏🏻💕🤗
