According to Buddha

Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place

all inside our amsterdam she hides
that howling wind, she’s waving hi
her other hand’s in mine


reflections of yesterday at Manchester Square Edmonton Amiskwaciwâskahikan ᐊᒥᐢᑲᐧᒋᐋᐧᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ + streets of Amsterdam 2018 ~ December 2021

  1. I really appreciated the According to Buddha section today. It seems so relevant right now.

  2. A beautifully uplifting post, with excellent reflections

  3. I love the words of your Buddha, they are so good! And what photos! Love the puddles! Looks like that outside my window this morning, and yesterday and the day before that! ☔ Haha, the weather could indeed be in Manchester, England as well. Rainy days in Belfast, Manchester and also in Edmonton. 🤗🌹🙋‍♂️

  4. Stunnning reflections!

    • Ahhh yes Amsterdam…here it’s frozen rain and ice picks…had some reflective moments this week Alex ~ hugs over the pond hedy ☺️❄️🌞💛

  5. A great wee video and song too although now I’m feeling sad! All that rain, I suppose.

    • Well I’d prefer rain…those are older images from Amsterdam mixed with ones from here in frozen rain ice etown 😰ice picks maybe you saw news of humans skating in our streets 🤓😅need snow to 👣👣👣👣👣hugs Ashley for a joyful new day ~ hedy ❄️

  6. Lovely scenes this week Hedy. How are your holiday plans coming. I hope you have a great week.

    • Combined some old restored images with my foto Friday walk 👣💎so icy I was imagining Amsterdam☺️have sent a parcel to the west coast…home for the holidays this year…and you? 🎅busy week but fun ~ sending you joy ~ hugs hedy 🤗

  7. Beautiful colors, boxy squares and rectangles in those edifices. Puddle jumping at hand. Or should I say foot?

    • Yes the puddles were in Amsterdam here in etown we had frozen rain 😰 walking with picks and remembering bikes and rain ☺️💫have a joyful day Timothy ~ hugs hedy 🤗

  8. Amsterdam is so great. I was there in 2016 and would be happy to spend time there again.

    • Yes…I’m biased ☺️🤓🇱🇺me too…soon I’m hoping…the first and last is a building here in etown…trying for a euro look 🤓☺️I was remembering my roots ~ sending joy hedy 💫

  9. Thanks for sharing, Hedy. Wishing you peace!

  10. I like that philosophy Hedy!

  11. That’s a message I needed to hear today.

  12. Nice. I can see the eye of someone who has walked these streets more than once. 🙂

  13. Inspiring and thought provoking. You and Amsterdam 💛🙏💛

    • well thee Netherlands are my roots Val…and some days I know I don’t belong here in etown…the architecture reminds me of that…hugs ☮️💜🕊om hedy

  14. Everyone of these a winner, but my faves have to be the bicycle and the one above it – such interesting framing.

    • ahhh yes the “real” Amsterdam…I’m yearning to be there very much these days Alison 🤓☺️🙏sending you joy and big hugs🤗🕊🤍

  15. Manchester square? This looked very Dutch.
    Now that’s an interesting thought about Sorrow. Yet, some Sorrows tend to be eternal. At least for me and my daughter… I am concerned about her… And nothing much I can do…
    Anyway. Merry Christmas Hedy. 🙏🏻

    • I think they were trying for some euro look…it’s a cool enough space…but it’s not Amsterdam by any stretch 😌…yes her pain must beee brutal Brian…grief and mourning are different for us all…and for sure I appreciate your pain in this too…sending 🕊🤍and all good things…ps. I may have said this before but for me working with a death doula helped me very much…🤓 hugs and love for another holiday season☮️💜

      • I think you mentioned a death doula. (Doctor?) She’s been in therapy. Took up the piano again. Plays Satie now, immersed in her work. Making a name with NGO’s on gender issues. She is as well as can be. But there are tiny issues which will last a long while. We all help as much as we can.
        Hugs and love back…


  17. Hello Miss Hedy … far better things will take there place! Wonderful … Stunning photos my friend, love those reflections. What an eye you have! Hugs 🙂🤗💫
