According to Buddha

I enjoy everything, but I have no desire for anything, so there is never any pain or disappointment from unfulfillment. Whatever I do, wherever I go, I enjoy myself.

i been looking at the stars tonight
and i think oh, how i miss that bright sun
i’ll be a dreamer ’til the day i die
but they say oh, how the good die young
but we’re all strange
and maybe we don’t wanna change

and i don’t want a never ending life
i just want to be alive while i’m here
and i don’t want to see another night
lost inside a lonely life while i’m here

i got guns in my head and they won’t go
spirits in my head and they won’t go
but the gun still rattles
the gun still rattles, oh

according to Buddha

It is not as a means of procuring my own happiness that I give in charity, but I love charity that I may do good to the world.

i met Frankie, a San Diego busker…“Busker” (British slang for street performer).

i know not all people asking for money on the street are musicians

but on this street corner i photographed Frankie

who asked “You want to hear some Johnny Cash?”

i love Johnny Cash!

Love is a burning thing
and it makes a firery ring
bound by wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire…

Ring of

after giving Frankie a couple of bucks he strummed straight into a rendition of

Light my Fire” by The Doors.

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn’t get much higher
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

both songs sung out of key added to his awe-inspiring antics…

his hyper manic performance

was truly beautiful…

and for me there is a joy in the act of giving

i think about what i give…

i think about what i take…

what does a “charitable nature” look and feel like?

what are my intentions between what i have and what i give?

what is the motivation behind acts of charity?

what is charity in 2011?

i wondered if Frankie had a safe home to return to when he was done performing…
