According to Buddha

The goal of yoga science is to calm the mind, that without distortion it may hear the infallible counsel of the inner voice.

  1. Beautiful photos and words to connect together. 🙏🖤

  2. Always amazing ice sculpture!

    • nice ones indeed Hiền…much smaller festival with no International ice sculptures but still so nice to see these ones…have a wonderful Sunday ~ smiles hedy ☺️💫

  3. Love your photos … and yes … I like the way they fit the quote. Hedy … Please consider collaborating with me on a walk. https://beachwalkreflections.wordpress.com/collaborators/

  4. ‘The inner voice’, guides the head and heart well.
    listen attentively
    timely photos Hedy, did you wear gloves when you took these?

  5. Those are fantastic. I’m partial to the beaver.

  6. Amazing ice sculptures.

    • Thank you kindly Rabirius I didn’t meet the artists…but I enjoyed the placement in this park this year with the pandemic…my father also made ice sculptures…fond memories for me as well…have a creative day ~ smiles over the pond!

  7. Oh, thse are just beautiful, Hedy. Have a great week.

  8. magnificent art.

    • They were very beautiful Gavin and nice to see them in a park … even they were all physically distanced … few humans it’s into the -38 here tomorrow very fresh indeed 🌬❄️🥶 hoping your enjoying summery days ~ smiles your way hedy 💫😀

  9. Knowing smiles of yoga calm know the essence of beauty so well captured in beauty Hedy!!
    Nice!❤️

    • I feel best with some routine and yoga has been a long standing practice for me…learning to be self disciplined about “doing” it is harder…I do miss my teachers but I’m enjoy the zoom/YouTube yoga more now…it’s been nearly a year now 🤦‍♀️🙃🙂 great time to be alive! happy Wednesday Cindy ~ smiles and joy hedy ☺️💫

      • It’s so awesome you have maintained your practice on zoom. I did drop ins occasionally when I was teaching live and thought I would do more zoom for me not just for teaching but it’s so busy. I do my own mini yoga everyday and then my class. So weird. I miss the students that don’t like zoom.
        Happy Wed to you to Hedy!!♥️💕🌸

  10. Ice critters … hopefully they have not shown any signs of melt.

  11. Inner voice? I/eye see what you mean. Finished your book. loved it. tells a lot about you. I will lend it to daughter #2. She should enjoy it.
    Smiles.

  12. “We don’t need another hero…” true, but maybe we need another story?

    • I don’t know….but yes telling and retelling matters…being heard and listening also matter, you know that though Brian ~ sending you joy ☺️💫

      • To listen and be heard… Yes. Recently I have thought a lot about a teacher of mine in Grad school. He was from Chicago. An accent not so different from some Canadians. He taught us many things, including 3 fundamentals: 1) Cognitive dissonance. 2) Milgram’s submission to authority. 3) Bureaupathology, how any bureaucracy eventually becomes a pathology. 3 keys to understand the world…
        Joy back.

  13. Like I said, I liked the book. De-(re?)-constructed? I “missed” Derrida and others. Lacan was not even strong when I went to College and Grad school. Spanned the 70’s with breaks in between.
    I’m sure your research helped you be a better educator… 👏🏻

    • and yet all the ‘ists’ and ‘isms’ are little boxes…I do love lingering in those thoughts though…I throughly enjoyed teaching…students were the best!

      • Very true about little boxes… One must avoid them. (Just as I avoid ideologies, as devoid of ideas!) 😉
        Students must be rewarding.

  14. And your mention of calling your father reminded me how important he was.
    Again: thank you for the book. 📖

  15. Sort of de-constructed my comments here. 😉
    Wonderful narrative of how Humankind makes the best of the hardest circumstances: turn – freezing – ice into Art. Art that I/eye can see… 👁

    • jajajajaja…deconstruction and rebuild right 🤓it was brutal cold…I’m no longer enjoying this -40 stuff…along with lockdown of a year…I’m ready to fly ☺️💫 I know I know….patience is a virtue….my father use to make ice sculptures…nice memory for me ☺️ smiles Brian happy weekending 💫

  16. That is quite amazing, Hedy. Thank you for getting out into that cold to make these. I like the closeups a lot – they really have the look of carved crystal.
