According to Buddha

People cleave to their worldly possessions and selfish passions so blindly as to sacrifice their own lives for them. They are like a child who tries to eat a little honey smeared on the edge of a knife. The amount is by no means sufficient to appease their appetite, but they run the risk of wounding the tongue.

honey honey, how you thrill me, a-ha, honey honey
honey honey, nearly kill me, a-ha, honey honey
i’d heard about you before
i wanted to know some more

a day or so ago ~ Granville Island Public Market ~ Vancouver, BC is located on the unceded, ancestral and traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səlil̓wətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples ~ May 2022

  1. taxpayers hate this book..

    After the Norman invasion and conquest of England in 1066, the Domesday Book was commissioned in December 1085 by order of William The Conqueror. William needed to raise taxes to pay for his army and so a survey was set in motion to assess the wealth and and assets of his subjects throughout the land.

    • Apologies for my delayed response Han…I was amazed this book was written in 1085🤓😳my dislike of numbers has taught me a lot along the way here on my sloppy blog☺️🙏hugs and love over the pond💘

  2. People have too much stuff. They usually don’t know what to do what it,
    If they could just give it to those who need it!
    Interesting post and photos Hedy.

  3. Was that dog sitting in the right place, or what? 😉 Honey, it’s irresistible…but there’s such a thing as too much. 🙂
