According to Buddha

Be as careful as you can. Our minds are funny. Sometimes we are skeptical of things that are really worthwhile and completely accepting of things that we should avoid. Try to avoid extremes and follow the middle way, checking with wisdom wherever you go.

we’re on a road to nowhere
come on inside
takin’ that ride to nowhere
we’ll take that ride

  1. Oh boy! Too cold for me, so, will stay inside where it is warm, and where my heart beats with a joy not known before. Bless you, dear Hedy; I reach out across the miles, and pray that you are safe and well, that your new year will be happy and wide-eyed 🌹💌🙋‍♂️
